Does your museum have a History Maker?

AIM Biffa Award Logo

Thanks to the generosity of Biffa Award and the success of the previously funded projects, I’m delighted to be working with AIM on a further round of History Makers grants. The programme is now open for Expressions of Interest.

Eligible organisations can apply for grants of up to £75,000 to create new exhibitions telling the inspirational stories of their chosen history maker.

Successful projects will show how the life and work of the history maker has helped shape the world we live in today.

We are particularly keen to hear from projects based on women who made history and history makers from diverse backgrounds.

All of the details of how to apply can be found on the AIM website, where you can also see details of successful applicants to previous rounds.

We will also be holding a webinar on Tuesday 17th of November at 2pm for anybody who would like to learn more about the scheme. Full details of how to register can be found here.

Our latest grant recipients, who are just getting started on their projects are:

National Football Museum, ManchesterLily Parr; Football’s first female superstar
