Projects & Grants


The South West Museum Development programme is funding six regional projects during 2012-15. These projects were developed to meet the needs of museums as expressed through annual Museum Development consultations and to align with the programme’s key performance targets set out by Arts Council England. Our programmes span the ACE five strategic goals and aim to support museums develop in areas of collections excellence, audience development,  digital engagement and resilience. The programmes are underpinned supporting the development of skills and leadership within the sector in the South West.


For 2015-18, the South West Museum Development Programme will be working on a number of regional projects, details of which will be confirmed shortly. We are however pleased to confirm Towards a Sustainable Conservation Service as our newest regional project.
