  • The Art Fund - Weston Loan Programme

    Created: 24/10/2023
    News/Events Category: Funding and Finance


    The Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund provides funding and training for regional museums and galleries to secure important strategic loans from major UK collections.

    The grants cover up to 100% of the costs associated with securing and displaying a loan, for example security reviews, insurance, transportation, conservation, installation, and invigilation. They also support activity related to maximising the impact of the loan, such as production of marketing materials, on-site interpretation and/or audience engagement activity.

    They will consider applications that:

    • Enhance or maximise the possibilities of already planned loans/exhibitions/programming
    • Enable ‘quickfire’ and ‘quick win’ loan requests
    • Support long-term relationship and display development

    Who can apply

    UK public museums, galleries, historic houses, libraries and archives that:

    • Have permanent collections
    • Are regional and/or run by a local authority, university, or have independent/charitable trust status
    • Are open for at least half the week for at least six months of the year
    • Are at least provisionally accredited under the Arts Council Accreditation Scheme

    How to apply

    You are encouraged to review the Guidance for applicants and contact the Programmes team to discuss your initial ideas before submitting an application. Find out more on the SCVO website. 

    The closing date for applications is Friday 15 December 2023.
