Volunteer Museum Grants – round 2 are open

Volunteers participate in a Care and Handling of Photographs workshop at Port Macquarie Museum, funded by a Skills Development Grant.


M&G NSW is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for two grants from the Volunteer Museum Grant Program. These grants provide assistance to volunteer community museums and Aboriginal Keeping Places in NSW.

Funded by the NSW Government through Create NSW and administrated by Museums & Galleries of NSW, the program is designed to provide access to funding, in addition to providing experience in the grant application process.


Up to $2,000 for short-term, collection-based projects.
There are no set categories for funding and applications for a broad range of projects will be considered.

Project Development Grants allow community museums and keeping places to carry out strategic and innovative projects with mid to long term outcomes. The grants can also provide an opportunity to work productively with an appropriate museums and/or arts consultant as a skill development opportunity.
