Arnolfini - est 1961

Arnolfini is Bristol’s international centre for contemporary art, welcoming more than half a million people to our physical and digital spaces each year. A founding icon on Bristol’s harbourside, for 63+ years we have presented an interdisciplinary programme of international visual arts, film, photography, performance, live art, music, dance, literature, craft and design to audiences from across the South West and beyond.

Across our work, we reflect Bristol’s diverse communities through a local, regional, national and international lens, providing creative spaces for everyone to explore culture and different ways of seeing the world. We extend our reach to audiences who would not ordinarily engage with contemporary art through hyper-local partnerships and collaborations, opening meaningful opportunities to contribute to our work and multiple-entry points to creative projects and activities.

A registered charity, we rely on the generous support of businesses, grants and individual donors to extend our reach and ensure everyone in our community feels welcome at Arnolfini. Additional support enables us to break down barriers, inviting everyone to contribute to our work and opening opportunities to join in an evolving practice of socially engaged co-creation.

Please donate what you can manage – any amount is always appreciated – to enable us to reach as many people as possible through our work.

One of the best ways to boost the value of your donation, is to donate with Gift Aid which will allow us to claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate at no extra cost to you.

You do need to be a registered UK taxpayer as the additional Gift Aid element is reclaimed from the tax you pay.
