Manchester Museum is looking to support new programmes, projects or events that respond to its new Heritage Futures exhibition and are inviting community groups, creative practitioners and researchers to put forward their ideas.

They are interested in ideas that are original, ambitious in scale, or would allow you to try something new, and are keen to support people or groups who might not have delivered events before. Manchester Museum are looking to support applications that meet the following criteria:

  • Respond to any of the four Heritage Futures themes
  • Reflect their values and ambition to become the UK’s most caring, imaginative and accessible museum
  • Contribute to their vision to build a sustainable future and understanding between cultures

What Manchester Museum are offering:

  • A simple application process with minimal paper work and a speedy response
  • The option to apply for a small grant of up to £1,000 to support the development and delivery of your idea
  • Support from a member of the team to help you to work on your idea and manage the financial side of things
