The Libraries Taskforce ran a series of masterclasses in February and March 2018 which collated advice and ideas from a wide range of other funding bodies. These complemented a series of events run by Arts Council England which shared advice and guidance about how to apply for their funding.

The Taskforce produced a pack of material for these masterclasses, which included a template of questions to ask as you work through the process. This page shares the additional information delegates received, including the template. For more information on the masterclasses, see our blog.
