The Museums Association’s new Digital Innovation and Engagement Fund will provide a series of grants of up to £50k to scale up and evaluate the new ways of working that they have developed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ideal applicants will be able to use support given by the Museums Association to extend their digital innovation to either engage new audiences or to embed their digital practice to connect their audiences to collections. This means the association are particularly interested in museums that have made changes to their audience engagement during lockdown; who have seen the benefits of this creativity and who are now looking to build on it.
Museums and galleries that have been recommended to apply should submit an expression of interest on our short form by 5pm on Monday December 21 2020
