THE VISION

WITH YOUR SUPPORT WE WILL BE ABLE TO:

– stay active and open with free admission to the public

– continue to support and stimulate the artists we commission

– keep delivering art in original ways

– sustain a reflective space where people adjust their perspective

– continuously expand the critical context within which art is interpreted

 

YOUR DONATION WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE:

– £10 will contribute towards printing an exhibition flyer

– £500 will cover the cost of presentation materials for one exhibition

– £5000 will pay for a new art commission by an emerging artist

 

However large or small, your donation will make a big difference to

Beaconsfield’s survival as a unique artists’ project. We value each

contribution that directly enables the commissioning of emergent artists.

Together we can secure the gallery’s future as a truly independent,

streamlined resource for the development and presentation of contemporary art.

 

It may surprise you to know:

– we are a registered charity (no.1046852)

– we are a totally independent art space receiving no public funding, we have to raise all our own income to stay open

– we currently run 4+ exhibitions and numerous events each year and raise all the funds to commission the artists

– the gallery was founded by artists, and relies on the goodwill of artist volunteers

 

We urgently need your help to enable Beaconsfield to thrive.

As this autonomous art space moves past its quartercentury we now need your support no matter how small a donation you can afford.

Founded as an educational charity by artists in 1994 with the desire to fill a niche between the institution, the commercial and ‘alternative’, Beaconsfield remains a unique, non-profit, artist-led entity, placing equal emphasis on audiences and artists.

Beaconsfield’s reputation rests on the staging of an influential programme of exhibitions, residencies and discursive events with commissions (beacons) in a range of art mediums (field).

The organisation’s function as a primary research vehicle is international and particularly notable for pioneering developments in time-based, sound-based and curatorial practice.

So we need to continue to raise our core costs (such as rent, rates, heat & light) to continue as a self-sufficient, critically engaged locus operating beyond the mainstream.

We already rely upon your moral support and now need your practical support to stay open.
