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
