Museum Interpretation Grants (Deadline: Sept 1)

Museum Interpretation Grants of up to $2000
Application Deadline September 1, 2010

The Utah Humanities Council, in partnership with the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, offers grants to Utah’s small museums for projects relating to museum interpretation. In the context of museum work, to interpret an object means to tell a story through labels, brochures, docent tours, public programming, and other means. Inanimate objects dropped into a display case cannot tell museum-goers about themselves. Instead, they need human interpreters—museum volunteers and professionals—to explain their meaning to human visitors.

Are you researching collections, writing labels and exhibit text, creating education materials, developing docent training, or planning public programs? We may be able to help!

Applications for grants up to $2000 will be accepted until September 1, 2010. Find guidelines and application forms at http://www.utahhumanities.org/Grants.htm
