Museums Association: Digital Innovation and Engagement Fund

The Museums Association alongside UKRI and AHRC are offering a series of grants, between £25,000-£50,000 for one-year projects that support museums to explore digital innovation and to evaluate, refine, and build on their recent digital engagement. The new fund will enable museums and galleries to kick-start, scale up, and evaluate the innovations they’ve so adeptly designed to connect collections to audiences through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Digital platforms mean museums can offer varied access points for audiences; online, remote, on site and with varying levels of participation. As society lives with the pandemic, the flexible nature of this delivery is key to museums’ value and sustainability.

We are looking for applicants that can use our support to extend their digital innovation to either engage new audiences or to embed their digital practice to connect their audiences to collections. This means we’re particularly interested in museums that have made changes to their audience engagement during lockdown; who have seen the benefits of this creativity and who are now looking to build on it. We want to see how innovation in areas such as remote co-production, placemaking, community wellbeing and gamification can affect longer term change in the sector.
