Exhibition Circulation Fund Re-Opens for Applications for 2019 – 2020
Is your museum hosting a travelling exhibition that will open between now and March 31, 2020? If so, you may be eligible to receive support through the Exhibition Circulation Fund (ECF).
ECF supports museums to host travelling exhibits that facilitate Canadians’ access to our heritage.
To be eligible, the host museum must:
employ the equivalent of at least one full-time, paid professional staff;
provide services to the public year-round; and,
have policies for key museum functions.
The exhibit can come from any other museum in Canada, including from within your home province or territory.
ECF has no deadline: applications are accepted until the yearly budget has been allocated. While ECF had already been closed for this year, additional funding has become available, so applications are again being accepted for the 2019 – 2020 fiscal year.
This additional funding is limited, so if you would like to apply or have any questions, please contact Colleen Craig, Senior Program Advisor, Department of Canadian Heritage, at email@example.com or 604.348.7614.
For those planning future exhibits, the fund will be open as usual for exhibits opening next federal fiscal year, April 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021. Applicants are encouraged to submit their applications at least four months before the exhibit opens; a signed loan agreement is required at the time of submission. To discuss a proposal or for support with the application process, please feel free to call or email Colleen Craig.
