Applicants can apply for a grant of either £2,500 or £5,000 for a project relating to archaeology, industrial development, architecture. arts and crafts, history and law, language and literature, music, folklore and folk dance, natural history and ecology

Dr Breesha Maddrell, Director of Culture Vannin, said “Projects which embrace innovation and change will be given priority - this could be to cover the development of a special body of work, or a new way of sharing and promoting existing materials. There should be some element of online delivery to ensure accessibility. We are particularly interested in projects that use collections or archives as an inspiration, and those which bring the past, present or future into dialogue.”
