#SupportBeaconsfield is vital for Beaconsfield’s survival as this autonomous art space enters its 25th year. In times of austerity and after two decades as a fixed-term client of Arts Council England, Beaconsfield has survived for over 4 years without public funding.
For Beaconsfield to continue we urgently need your support. For as little a £10 a year become our friend, or if you feel very passionate about what Beaconsfield represents, then you can make a more regular payment of £5 or £10 a month. If you can afford to give us more then please do so. Beaconsfield desperately needs your support so please take the plunge and help us survive.
You can pay instantly via PayPal or GoCardless. Click on the Donate buttons below and enter a one-off or regular donation amount. Please make sure to fill in the above Donation Form and return to Lucy so that we can log all your details correctly. Thank you.
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, placing equal emphasis on audiences and artists.
BGV’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, political and sound art as well as artist-led curatorial practice. We need to raise a minimum £85,000 per annum to maintain Beaconsfield’s potential 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 active and open with free admission.
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
– continue expanding the critical context within which art is interpreted
YOUR DONATION WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
– £100 will open the doors and kick-start an evening event
– £500 will cover the cost of artist materials for one exhibition
– £5000 will allow a new art commission, including a proper artist fee
– £85,000 will cover venue running costs for one year
However large or small, your donation will make a huge impact on BGV’s survival as a unique artists’ project. We value each contribution that directly enables the commissioning of emergent and established artists. Together we can secure the gallery’s future as a truly independent, streamlined resource for the development and presentation of contemporary art.
