Museums (accredited and non-accredited), archives, historic libraries and community organisations which hold collections across the UK now have until 24 April 2023 to apply for up to £250,000 in Lottery funding to help build resilience in the heritage sector.
Dynamic Collections is designed to address long-term challenges in the sector, many of which have been made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The National Lottery Heritage Fund launched the Dynamic Collections campaign a year ago with the goals of:
- Supporting heritage organisations to make collections more relevant to a wider range of people.
- Involving the public in the development, management and interpretation of collections.
- Helping heritage organisations to act sustainably when developing their collections.
Collections help to bring to life the stories of people and communities across the UK.
There are three funding priorities for collections: engagement, re-interpretation and better collection management.
Please note the Heritage Fund application portals will be closed for upgrade work from 5pm on 29 March until 6 April 2023.
Although the campaign is coming to an end, the Heritage Fund’s new 10-year strategy ‘Heritage 2033’ will provide further opportunities for collections. Further details about the delivery plans of the £3.6 billion investment across the UK are expected in summer 2023.
The deadline for applications to the Dynamic Collections has been extended from 31 March 2023 to 24 April 2023.
