Participate is run by a committed group of volunteers who give their time to deliver an experimental and innovative programme of contemporary exhibitions, events and community engagement. Participate exists to create opportunities for emerging artists, curators and art events. We collaborate with education, health and community organisations to make arts accessible to a wider audience.
Our independence and the freedom to develop artist-led projects, local community activities and the continuation of volunteer-led exhibitions and residencies are highly important to us, which is why Participate seeks funding for specific exhibitions and events rather than relying on long-term financial support.
Why not consider supporting us on a short or long-term basis?
A one off donation of just a few pounds or a regular donation of as little as £2 per month will make a big difference to the work we do with artists and the exhibitions that we deliver. Your donation will go towards:
- Delivering inspiring exhibitions and projects
- Supporting the development of aspiring artists and arts professionals
- Refurbishing the studios and exhibitions space
- Purchasing new equipment
