NIMC Grants 2019-20: Update

Funding pressures mean that NIMC grant programmes will remain closed.

07 June 2019

During the 2018-19 business year, the Museums Council financially supported from the Main Grant scheme, 16 projects in eight museums.  A further three grants were allocated for acquisitions.  Project work with Reimagine, Remake, Replay and The Late Shift, supported 12 museums to develop and attract more diverse audiences to museums.

Due to funding pressures during the 2019-20 business year, the Museums Council is unable to provide direct financial assistance to museums and therefore our grant programmes will remain closed. 

We will, however, continue to provide support to local museums with the Reimagine, Remake, Replay and The Late Shift projects.  In addition, three museums will be supported with the exhibition A Brush with Nature together with public engagement workshops.  All three projects are generously supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
