Malcolm Taylor Grant for Folk Collections

Malcolm Taylor was Librarian and later Director of the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library (VWML) from 1979-2014. To celebrate his 35 years of service, a fund has been established in his name to support the development of small folk arts collections and archives.

The scheme is to promote good practice in the creation and development of collections.

EFDSS is offering grants of up to £500 for the development, creation and preservation of folk related materials held by individuals or small organisations. Grants can be used for the purchase of archival quality packaging, remedial conservation work, courses and advice, and the creation and presentation of collections.
