Arnolfini support us

As a charity we depend on donations and the generosity of our supporters to help us grow our innovative programme of exhibitions and events.

For nearly 60 years Arnolfini has been a meeting place, a catalyst for ideas, and a unique showcase for world class contemporary art and performance. In this time, we have supported now-influential artists early in their careers and have enabled people of all ages and backgrounds to experience art.

As well as supporting young, local artists and the production of new work, your donation funds meaningful work in the local community, including family workshops, projects with marginalised communities and inspirational workshops for school children.

“The best moments in Now or Never were starting filming in front of the green screen, getting to know everyone in the group and walking into the gallery space at the end and seeing all our work for the first time” Now or Never core-artist 2018

“Arnolfini’s workshop helped one of our Year 13s get a place on UWE’s Interior Design degree course earlier this month. She wrote about the workshop in her UCAS Personal Statement and discussed this again at interview”

Meryl Campbell, Head of Art at Kings Oak Academy
