Funding Opportunity: The Weston Loan Programme With Art Fund Is Now Open

Are you looking to enhance your collection by borrowing a work of art? Do you have a project in the pipeline that would benefit from a particular loan?

The Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund is designed to support the wider sharing of national collections with museums across the UK, and is made possible with the support of the Garfield Weston Foundation. We’re excited to let you know that applications are now open.

Alongside initiatives such as Arts Council England’s Ready to Borrow and the Touring Exhibition Group’s Preparing to Borrow, the programme provides funding for museums around the country to secure important strategic loans, and maximises loan opportunities in the context of your own collections and communities.

You can apply for funding to support a range of needs, from securing the loan itself to maximising its impact for your organisation.  We recognise the great value of our national collections being shared more widely across the UK, and hope that your teams, collections and audiences nationwide will benefit from involvement in this programme over the next three years, and beyond.

Applications close 12 noon Thursday 14 September

Find out more and apply via www.artfund.org/supporting-museums/weston-loan-programme

Please contact Penny Bull, Senior Programmes Manager, if you have any queries or would like to discuss a potential project: pbull@artfund.org, 020 7225 4840
