A National Portfolio Organisation 2018-22

In April 2018 we became an Arts Council England-funded National Portfolio Organisation.

We’re thrilled to be one of only 72 museums in England to be recognised in this way and will be using the £2.2m investment to invest in a wide range of projects and activity between 2018-2022.

These will include:

  • Improving resilience. We’ll be continuing to lead the Museums & Resilient Leadership programme from 2018-2022
  • Helping us deliver BCLM: Forging Ahead. ACE investment will support the delivery of our ambitious £21.7m development project, BCLM: Forging Ahead
  • Widening participation. We’ll ensure people of all ages and background are able to experience the region’s rich heritage
