The British Museum Department of Africa, Oceania and the Americas recently launched a new grant programme to fund documentation of critically endangered material knowledge systems across the globe, with a focus on non-western contexts. Funded by Arcadia – a charitable trust of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin, grants will be available for digital recording of material practices, which will then be made publically available through an open access repository hosted by the Museum.
Small grants (c£15,000) and large grants (c £70,000) are available, and details of the programme and links to the application forms can be found on our website.
Please contact us at if you require any further information.
