Funding success for new Museum & Art Gallery ‘Winter Warmer’ project

Published on Wednesday, 28th October 2020

The museum will be working with an experienced artist to produce creative activity packs inspired by the museum’s collections.

Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant of £2040 from West Midlands Museum Development and Art Fund to develop a pilot activity for family audiences that have not been able to engage with the museum digitally during the pandemic.

The museum will be working with an experienced artist to produce creative activity packs inspired by the museum’s collections. The museum will also be working in partnership with SAINTS, a local organisation supporting creative projects to alleviate poverty, to produce a series of artist led creative workshops throughout January 2021.

This pilot project will help the Museum & Art Gallery and our partners establish new methods for future activity with local family audiences who may not have the means to access creative activities through digital platforms. It will also provide a fantastic opportunity for networking and future collaborative partnership projects locally.

Councillor Ian Lloyd, Portfolio Holder for Arts & Leisure said:

"This is a wonderful opportunity for the Museum & Art Gallery to continue to diversify its audiences by taking a very creative approach.  The Winter Warmer project will offer fantastic creative enjoyment to local families as well as providing a great opportunity for future community partnership development."
