The Henry Moore Foundation is aware of the challenges and complications that organisations have been facing in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. We understand the difficulties faced ensuring the continuity of public programmes and the ability to forward plan in a moment of such uncertainty.
Due to the current circumstances, we have received many notifications from grant recipients advising us that exhibitions and projects that the Henry Moore Foundation has supported, are now being delayed. The Foundation will endeavour to maintain its support for projects irrespective of such changes.
If you would like to discuss any specific questions, please contact our Grants Administrator using the form below.
