Renaissance is the the Arts Council's ground-breaking programme to transform England’s regional museums.
In January 2012 the Arts Council England announced that the Royal Pavilion & Museums were one of just 16 Museums services across the country to receive a prestigious Arts Council Renaissance Major Partner award following a successful application process.
From 2012-2015 the grant in excess of £2 million will fund better access to exhibits via digital technology, more exhibitions and collaborations, skills training for staff and artists, apprenticeships, improved marketing, developments in fundraising and work to provide regional leadership within the museums sector.
Prior to this from 2003-2012 the Royal Pavilion & Museums benefitted from Renaissance funding via the Museums & Libraries Association (MLA). The funds helped create two new galleries at Brighton Museum- an Ancient Egypt Gallery and the World Stories: Young Voices Gallery, as well as funding the Royal Pavilion's Prince Regent Gallery which opened in February 2011 and the Indian Military Hospital Gallery which opened March 2010.
