ABTEM members are encouraged to have a look at the AIM Biffa Award History Makers grant programme.
Eligible organisations can apply for grants of up to £90,000 to create an exhibition telling the story of their chosen History Maker – someone who helped shape the world we live in today.
All the details can be found on the AIM website at https://www.aim-museums.co.uk/for-aim-members/grants/aim-biffa-award-history-makers-programme/
We’ve already funded some great projects celebrating history makers from the worlds of education, engineering, sport, health and science, but we want more.
We are looking for projects that use the life and achievements of extraordinary historical figures to inspire and educate people today.
Your History Maker may not be a well-known public figure, but their life and/or work will have helped shape the world we live in today. People are making history all the time, so we are happy to consider history makers from any period, including more recent history.
We want the programme to be as representative of the population as possible, so are particularly keen to hear from projects based on women who made history and history makers from diverse backgrounds.
The programme is open for Expressions of Interest now until the end of September, with the final application deadline at the end of October.
Please feel free to contact Tim Burge, History Makers Project Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to discuss a possible application and please pass this message on to any others who might be interested.
