SHARE ACADEMY – Grants of up to £10,00 available for collaborative projects between London museums and academics at UCL and the University of the Arts London

Share Academy is an Arts Council England collaborative project between University College London (UCL), the University of the Arts London (UAL), and London Museums Group (LMG). Its aim is to build sustainable and mutually beneficial partnerships between the higher education sector and specialist museums in London.

As part of the project we are offering grants of up to £10,000 to museums and academics with UCL and UAL to develop and deliver collaborative projects. This is a great opportunity to share experience, knowledge, and skills between the sectors. It is our hope that this funding will be used to establish new relationships, explore projects that bring mutual benefits to both the museum and HEIs, and develop longer term and more sustainable collaborations.

To apply for a grant you must find a suitable partner and submit an application by the 25th October 2013. If you have a project idea but are unsure of whom to contact we may be able to help. You can submit your idea to our team and we will try and find a potential partner you can contact.

More information on the grants and guidance on the application process can be found here:

Our grants can be used towards a variety of project requirements, including staff time, the employment of freelancers, or access to equipment.
