February’s #HeritageChat provided an opportunity to talk about ‘Funding & Fundraising in the Heritage Sector’, a timely topic for the sector and one of the outcomes set out in our Strategic Framework. The chat was led in collaboration with Tricolor Associates, and we shared some tweets from Martin Kaufman.

Participants debated topics such as: what funding opportunities are missing from the current offer for the sector; suggestions on how to make funding application easier for small heritage organisations, the impact of Covid-19 and the opportunities of the Culture Recovery Fund; digital crowdfunding; successes in how funding has enabled organisations to improving diversity; funding for progression in the heritage sector in 2021.
