WHO: curators who work across the full range of fine and applied art collections in museums and galleries. In addition, in recognition of the need for new skills, knowledge and research to benefit museum collections for the future, these grants are also available to researchers, art historians and academics from other relevant and related disciplines, retired curators, and other museum professionals who plan to work within and alongside museums to improve the use and understanding of their fine and applied art collections.
WHAT: the Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Grants programme has been created to help curators working with fine and applied art collections maintain and develop their specialist knowledge and expertise. It has been established through the auspices of Jonathan Ruffer and Anthony Mould, who share with the Art Fund a belief in the importance of nurturing curatorial skills and supporting serious research. Grants awarded through this programme aim to help sustain and promote curatorial development and collections-based research through making grants to individuals.
PAYMENTS: the Art Fund will consider funding requests for a minimum of £200. There are two categories of grant: one up to £2000; the other above £2000.
