We not only support museums through our grants programmes, fundraising campaigns and marketing initiatives; we also champion museums and galleries across the UK so that art is accessible to everyone.
We campaign publicly and influence behind the scenes on key issues including:
- Getting a sustainable funding model for museums and galleries from national and local government that enables our members and the public to access as much art as possible
- Implementing policies which enable greater philanthropic giving of art to UK institutions, and ensure that important pieces of cultural heritage remain in the UK
- Ensuring that current and future museum professionals are well supported, and have all the tools they need to understand and make the most out of their collections
- Advocating for the important role that museums and galleries play in health and wellbeing, tourism, social cohesion and place making.
