The Headley Fellowships with Art Fund give experienced curators focused time to research their collections, providing funding to back-fill their posts for six months and support training opportunities, research trips, courses of study and more.
We’re looking to support projects from curators working with any kind of collection that will develop specialist knowledge and expertise, have a significant public outcome for museums, and encourage knowledge sharing across the sector.
More information on the programme can be found in our guidance for applicants.
