Coronavirus information

Last updated: 4pm, Wednesday 8 April

The Henry Moore Foundation is aware of the emerging challenges and complications that organisations face in light of the coronavirus (Covid-19). 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.

However, the Foundation’s procedure for assessing future applications has been reviewed slightly because of the current suspension of exhibitions and activity.

Applications pending assessment that were received by the February deadline will now be considered in early July.

The next deadline date for new applications will be on 9 September, for projects starting after 9 December. Until further notice, we will reduce the period between the application deadline date and project start date from six months to three months.

If you would like to raise any specific questions, please email the Grants Administrator:


We are happy to announce that Henry Moore Studios & Gardens is now open, and the Henry Moore Institute will reopen to the public on Tuesday 1 September 2020. Find out more:
