Art Fund Launches Respond and Reimagine Grants
The Art Fund is providing Respond and Reimagine grants to help museums, galleries and cultural
organisations respond to immediate challenges connected to the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis,
and offer support to adapt and reimagine ways of working for the longer-term future.
These grants can provide practical support to fund what applicants need now. If an organisation is
experiencing an immediate crisis with no alternative sources of funding, The Art Fund can
consider offering emergency support to help organisations manage during this difficult period.
Applicants are encouraged to let The Art Fund know what support will be most helpful.

The next deadline for applications is 6 July 2020.

Call for Projects Addressing Barriers to Being Active During Coronavirus Pandemic
Sport England is looking to support innovative projects that remove barriers to being active during the coronavirus pandemic for those communities that are currently least well-served. Already existing inequalities are currently being exacerbated by the pandemic and those most affected are not able to access sports and activity and are missing out on the health benefits.

Applications can be submitted until noon on 24 June 2020.
