    Created: 04/05/2022, Updated: 05/05/2022

    Museums Galleries Scotland's Museum Development Fund is designed to support museums to make strategic steps towards becoming more resilient organisations in line with the aims of the National Strategy. It will fund projects that will help you to strategically develop your core work in line with their grant outcomes. The grant outcomes cover four areas – collections, audiences, workforce and sustainability. All projects must deliver against an outcome for sustainability.

    This fund can support a wide range of project activities. It will prioritise applications for projects about;

    • Developing digital capacity

    • Workforce capacity and resilience
    • Building resilience
