The Fund will Enable:
An Annual Commission – the Gallery will commission an established artist to create a new piece of work that will be displayed in our Commissions Gallery for a year. The works will be inspired by the space and the Gallery’s rich archive.

A Children’s Commission – each year an artist will be commissioned to create a work specifically for children, displayed in our dedicated education project galleries. The creation of these new art works will in turn inspire our education programme, with activities, workshops and talks developed for all audiences in response to the works, enabling the Gallery to engage children and young people, and attract new audiences from the local community and beyond.

Your donation will help us fund artist materials, the presentation of these unique commissions, and support the delivery of a diverse engagement programme for schools, families, young people and public visitors.

If you are a UK tax-payer, for every £1 you give, we can claim an additional 25p at no extra cost to you through the Gift Aid Scheme
