Funding for Museums in Wales to Support the Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan
Grants available to museums in Wales to support projects that deliver the Culture, Heritage and Sport goals and actions from the Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan.
The Association of Independent Museums (AIM) Re:Collections Grants scheme offers funding to museums in Wales to support projects that deliver the Culture, Heritage and Sport goals and actions from the Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan (ARWAP) and Programme for Government.
This programme is funded by the Welsh Government Anti-Racist Wales Culture, Heritage and Sport Fund.
Grants of up £15,000 are available to fund projects that deliver one or more of the aims of the Action Plan:
- Celebrating diversity: support all parts of the society in Wales to embrace and celebrate its diverse cultural heritage while understanding, and recognising the right to, freedom of cultural expression.
- The Historical Narrative: to work with public bodies to fully recognise their responsibility (individual and collectively) for setting the right historic narrative, promoting and delivering a balanced, authentic and decolonised account of the past – one that recognises both historical injustices and the positive impact of the Global Majority communities.
- Learning about cultural diversity: identify and meet targets to deliver anti-racist education and learning; including interpretation marketing and educational materials that recognise and celebrate the rich and diverse cultural mix of our society, encourage widespread physical and intellectual engagement and so promote anti-racist practice and principles throughout.
Accredited museums in Wales and museums that are working towards accreditation are eligible to apply.
Applicants will need to provide evidence that they’ve developed their project idea with some consultation and / or input from Global Majority partners organisations or community members, including a letter of support.
The deadline for applications is 31 May 2023.
