Malcolm Taylor was Librarian and later Director of the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library (VWML) from 1979 to 2014. To celebrate his 35 years of service, a fund in his name supports 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.
Applications are not currently being invited. The most recent decisions were made in August 2017 for projects commencing from September 2017.
We would like to thank all those individuals who financially contributed to this fund.
