£2,000 conservation grants available
The Tiles and Architectural Ceramics Society offers grants of up to £2,000 in support of specific conservation projects.
TACS Conservation Grants are offered primarily to museums and ecclesiastic establishments. Though other charitable institutions may be considered.
Grant funding can be used to enable conservation projects which may encompass accessioning, recording, and preparing for storage, conservation and restoration repairs and exhibition.
All applications must be accompanied by a conservation condition and treatment report carried out by a professional. In respect of larger projects, the grant may be used to prepare such a report.
Projects offering matching funding to the TACS Conservation Grant will be looked upon with favour.
Preference will be given to projects which are aimed at conserving important or rare collections of tiles and architectural ceramics.
Those interested in applying should submit an informal application by email in English as a Word document and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you prefer to apply by post, you may send it to TACS Conservation Grants, postal address as per TACS website. One conservation reference is also required, which must be no longer than a single page and must be submitted by your referee directly by email to email@example.com.
