Summary

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
