The Courtauld joins the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund

30 Jun 2021

The Courtauld is delighted to be part of the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund, an exciting partnership scheme that builds new and stronger relationships between cultural organisations across the UK.

The Weston Loan Programme encourages the sharing of works more widely across the UK and maximises the impact of loans in local communities.

Made possible with the support of the Garfield Weston Foundation, the programme provides funding between £5,000 – £25,000 to support museums and galleries to borrow works from major national collections. The grants cover up to 100% of the costs associated with securing and displaying a loan, for example security reviews, insurance, transportation, conservation, installation and invigilation.

Ernst Vegelin van Claerbergen, A&F Petitgas Head of the Courtauld Gallery, said: “We are committed to sharing The Courtauld’s fantastic collection with as many people across the UK as possible through collaborative partnerships with a range of cultural organisations. We are pleased we can continue to build on the work of our National Partners Programme and our extensive experience of lending from the collection through the Weston Loan Programme and we are very much looking forward to the opportunities to develop new relationships and reach new communities through the programme.”

Applications for the latest round of funding recently opened and full details of the programme can be found on the Art Fund website.

The Courtauld warmly encourages any organisation interested in loaning works from our collection to contact us to discuss their ideas further.
