AIM Blog for independent museums and heritage sites

Biffa Award and the Association of Independent Museums (AIM) announce the launch of a new £1million fund to celebrate ‘History Makers – People who shaped our world’ at AIM’s National Conference.

History Makers will fund museums to create new exhibitions that will inspire the public through the lives and achievements of extraordinary, historical figures who have made a significant impact on the industrial, scientific, commercial or social history of the UK, shaping the world we live in today.

The programme will be a partnership between Biffa Award and AIM and it will run over three years, awarding grants to AIM member museums of up to £75,000. It builds on the very successful collaboration between AIM and Biffa Award from 2012-2014, which saw £1.5m invested in National Heritage Landmark Projects, saving some of the UK’s most important industrial heritage.
