How we’re helping to increase access to art across the UK

We want to ensure that everyone can experience great art on their doorstep, so we're supporting museums to form dynamic partnerships that increase UK-wide access to collections. Meet our museum partners for Going Places and the latest recipients of the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund – find out how these opportunities, along with our other programmes, are transformative for local communities.
