Curators - don't miss out!
Rachael Browning, Programmes Manager (Projects) for The Art Fund tells us about the 2015 deadlines for the Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Grants programme.
The Ruffer programme provides £50,000 annually for travel and other practical costs to help curators undertake collection and exhibition research projects. Since the scheme’s inception we have helped over 160 curators and researchers at over 100 institutions undertake such projects across the globe.

Full details on the programme can be found on the Art Fund website.
Applications under £1,500 can be accepted at any time.
Applications over £1,500 are only considered three times a year.
The next deadline for large applications is later this week on Thursday 22 January 2015.
The next deadline on Wednesday 3 June 2015 and the final deadline in 2015 will fall on Wednesday 23 September 2015.
