Grants available for museum teaching

30 July 2013

Find out how you can obtain funding to work with a variety of London museums.

Girl holding skull

UCL is leading Share Academy, a partnership project with University of the Arts London and the London Museums Group, with the aim of building sustainable and mutually beneficial relationships between the higher education sector and specialist museums in London. Share Academy is supported by Arts Council England and is scheduled to run until March 2015.

The Share Academy team can offer support and advice together with small grants to help broker and kick start partnerships. Partnership projects might include collections-based research, working with museums to reach new audiences and generate impact, or introducing your students to new and inspiring spaces for learning.

The deadline for applications is in late October. Partnerships should be of proven benefit to both sides and should be able to demonstrate how they can be sustained in the long term. Projects should be timetabled to finish in under 12 months, with a final completion date of January 2015.

If you are a UCL academic member of staff and would like to consider building a relationship with a specialist museum in London, or already have one that you would like to develop further, the Share Academy team have produced a range of resources and guidance that you may find helpful.
