MD North goes live – from April 2024 

From April, we will be providing programmes and grants across the north of England, plus support and advice for individual museums and museum networks.

Meet the team: Every museum will have a Museum Development Adviser as a point of contact. There will also be opportunities to work with people across the team through their different specialisms.

Training: We will continue to offer a range of training opportunities. See events for April to June 2024.

Grants: Our first round of MD North Open Grants opens for applications on 15 April 2024.

Our support programme for museums in the north of England responds to Arts Council England’s Strategy, Let’s Create and addresses the four Investment Principles.

About MD North 

MD North is managed by a new partnership between York Museums Trust, the Manchester Museums Partnership, Cumbria Museum Consortium and Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums.

The MD North partnership is funded by ACE, with an award of £1.4m to deliver museum development activity in the north of England from 1st April 2024 until 31st March 2026. Our new partnership builds on the team’s experience of collaborative working across the north of England since 2018.
