Support Beaconsfield

Your donation will help us commission new artists, and test stagnant hierarchies and institutional stasis with innovation, experimentation and artistic freedom. A pioneer of experimental exhibition formats, Beaconsfield specialises in developing sustainable strategies to provide reflective and unpredictable space in which to deliver new experimental art.

Beaconsfield is one of London’s longest running and innovative artist run spaces – now in its 29th year. As an independent artist initiative and registered charity, and with no fixed state funding we need to raise 100% of our income from a variety of sources – individuals and companies, as well as from funding bodies, trusts and foundations.

You can donate to Beaconsfield with a single or repeat payment and give as much or as little as you like or can afford – donations of any size make a huge difference to us. We won’t patronise you with freebees and elitist privileges – every penny no matter how much you give is important to us – and will go directly towards paying for our artists and for preserving the space in which they create.

So please Support Beaconsfield – make a one off or regular payment of any amount:

  • Donate instantly via PayPal (one off or repeat) or GoCardless (repeat via direct debit)
  • Please follow the instructions on the PayPal or GoCardless form to make your donation eligible for Gift Aid
  • For more information on how to get involved and support the gallery, please contact admin (at)

About us:

Founded as a 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. Seen by many as a pioneer of innovative, experimental and non-compromising art practice – Beaconsfield has never toed the line.

Beaconsfield stages an experimental programme of exhibitions, residencies and discursive events with commissions (beacons) in a range of art mediums (field).

Beaconsfield’s function as a primary research vehicle has international reach and is particularly notable for instigating developments in time-based and sound art as well as curatorial practice: a critically engaged locus operating beyond the mainstream.

Special thanks to all of the volunteers, staff, Trustees and individual donors who have supported the organisation over the years.
