Arnolfini support us

We are a registered charity and rely on the generous support of individuals, companies, and trusts and foundations to realise our ambition.

We bring international contemporary art to our community in Bristol and beyond, welcoming everyone to participate in our work. For nearly 60 years, we have connected our audiences with world class art to create, celebrate, challenge and explore culture.

Through our work, millions of people have experienced work by thousands of living artists.

We support people to discover their creativity, working in our communities to reach young people and those who haven’t engaged with our work before.

We collaborate with artists, educators and thought leaders, led by our community we reflect ideas through contemporary art.

We encourage everyone to engage with our exhibitions, productions and performances, welcoming new and existing audiences to ensure everyone can experience inspiring art.

We remain mindful of founding director Jeremy Rees’ principle to ‘Enjoy Yourself’ and invite you all to join us to do just that.

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


Alternatively, pop your donation in a Gift Aid envelope when you next come in to visit us or use our credit/debit card donation points.
