Massee Arts Grant
The mission of the British Mycological Society is to promote fungal science and we recognise that art, in all its forms, provides a powerful route through which we can attract new audiences, provoke discussion and stimulate interest in mycology.
The Massee Arts Grant is named after George Edward Massee, who became the first President of the British Mycological Society following its foundation in 1896. Massee was an artist whose paintings attracted the attention of M.C. Cooke, Head of Mycology at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, leading to the recognition of Massee's work as a mycologist.
The Massee Arts Grant offers funding of up to £10,000 per annum (maximum £5000 per project) to support artists from all disciplines whose work helps encourage all sectors of society to engage and learn about the wonderful world of fungi.
Massee Arts Grants are awarded annually. The deadline for applications is 28 February and outcomes are communicated to applicants in April.
