Icon and Tru Vue Conservation & Exhibition Grant Scheme

We know that museums and galleries are dealing with the disruption caused by the pandemic and they need to make changes to the way that their collections are cared for and presented to visitors. TruVue and Icon would like to support conservation and care of collections teams to deliver projects that will address these challenges through this targeted grant scheme.

The grant is open to museums and galleries anywhere in the UK and it’s open to non-Accredited museums too. However, the grant is for heritage institutions with under 100,000 visitors per year.

Applications are open until 1 February 2022.

They are looking for projects that will:

Protect an object or objects already on display in order to reduce physical contact by members of the public


Enable an object that is not currently on display to be presented to visitors in a safe way

The grant scheme has two components:

  • Materials supplied by TruVue
  • Funding to cover the materials, supplies and/or support needed to deliver the project.

Grants of up to £2,200 per institution will be awarded.
