BAC launches new Cataloguing Grant for Business Archives related to the Arts
The Business Archives Council (BAC) is delighted to announce that additional to its annual cataloguing grant for business archives, this year it is also offering a £2000 cataloguing grant specifically for business archives related to the arts.
The grant’s aim is to support an under-represented area of business archives and to complement wider initiatives for archiving the arts by The National Archives and the recently launched Campaign for Voluntary Sector Archives. Also to:
- provide financial support for institutions/businesses that manage business archives related to the arts
- reach collections that have not yet been prioritised but have potential academic or socio-historical value
- create opportunities for archivists or para-professionals/volunteers to gain experience in listing business collections
- make more arts business collections accessible
