Judy Aitken, Heritage Lottery Fund
A look at some of the grant funding opportunities, structures and processes in HLF and, specifically, how cataloguing and digitisation projects are viewed.
Rupert Shepherd, Artists' Papers Register
The Artists' Papers Register, an online register of papers and other archival resources relating to artists, craftspeople and designers which are held in publicly-accessible repositories in the U.K., was first mooted in the mid-1980s. Since then, it has gradually been compiled as a result of the collaboration of several institutions and funding bodies, and is now in its final phase. The presentation will look at how this co-operative, cross-sectoral project has managed to work at the same time as keeping its many stakeholders happy.
The Artists' Papers Register was successful in obtaining funding from Full Disclosure in the 2003 Call.
Afternoon session chaired by Louise Smith, Director, Museum Documentation Association (MDA)
