The Queer Heritage and Collections Network
RCMG is delighted to be one of the founding members of the Queer Heritage and Collections Network alongside the National Trust, English Heritage, Historic England and Historic Royal Palaces.
The grant awarded to the Queer Heritage and Collections Network will support project manager, Dan Vo, to oversee the development of the network and cover the practical costs of a launch event and training workshop, including speaker fees and toolkits. The grant will also fund research to map current practice, knowledge and resources, helping the network plan future activities and making sure they remain responsive to the needs of the heritage sector and their audiences.

The Queer Heritage and Collections Network is a UK-wide Subject Specialist Network that provides training, networking and peer support to people working with LGBTQ+ collections and histories. The Network supports galleries, libraries, archives and museums that are developing public programming bringing LGBTQ+ histories and themes to the fore.
