Arts Council England (ACE) will announce its plans for English museum funding at a special lunchtime fringe event on Monday 7 November at the Museums Association (MA) Annual Conference and Exhibition 2016.

“We're excited about our new plans for funding museums across England and this event is a chance to hear more,” says John Orna-Ornstein, ACE’s director of museums.

“What are the opportunities for your own museum? Should you apply to be a National Portfolio Organisation? What can be funded through the new Grants for the Arts and Culture fund? What other funds will launch? Begin or continue your relationship with Arts Council England over lunch!”

The ACE lunch will take place from 1pm to 2pm in Dochart 1. It is open to all delegates on a first-come, first-served basis, and will include food.

Also hosting a networking lunch on Monday 7 is ICOM UK, in Dochart 2 from 1pm to 2pm, which will be attended by ICOM’s director-general Anne-Catherine Robert-Hauglustaine; and the Department for International Trade will be holding a networking lunch in the Mezzanine from 1pm to 2pm.

On Tuesday 8 November, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation will be holding a networking breakfast in Dochart 2 from 7.45am to 8.45am; and the Touring Exhibitions Group will be holding a networking lunch in Dochart 1 from 1.30pm to 2.40pm.

“There are a lot of exciting networking opportunities for delegates at Glasgow 2016,” says Simon Stephens, the MA’s head of publications and events. “This is a chance to meet potential funders and partners that could help you and your museum, and to be the first to hear about the latest funding developments across the sector.”
