Hull Museums has received a £145,692 grant from the government’s Cultural Recovery Fund.
Hull Museums is one of 1,385 arts and cultural organisations that are receiving a share of £257m as part of the first round of the Culture Recovery Fund grants programme being administered by Arts Council England.
The grant will be used to support Hull Museums’ learning offer, Heritage Learning.
Councillor Marjorie Brabazon, chair of Hull Culture and leisure, said:
“This is fantastic news for our museums learning offer, which provides such a vital service to our city and particularly our young people.
The service allows children the opportunity to learn about art, history and culture, opening up a world of wonder whilst igniting their imaginations.
“Preserving the learning offer is an essential part of remaining an Arts Council accredited service, which is critical when it comes to applying for many external grants that support our museums’ service and funding cultural projects within the city.”
The grant will allow Hull Museums to develop and adapt its learning service in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
This could support the creation of environments in which children can access the service safely, as well as allowing for remote and online learning.
