The South London Gallery (SLG) needs to raise over £1 million each year to fund our work as a registered charity.
Over the course of the past year, we have adapted our activities to ensure visitors, artists, young people, children and families have had access to creative resources. We have launched Convergence, a series of online critical debates and written commissions; continued our Young Peoples Programme through weekly online Art Assassins workshops; produced postal activity packs for local children and families; supported an early-career artist with six months of rent-free accommodation and studio space through our annual
Postgraduate Residency and adapted our buildings to ensure the safety of visitors. Unable to deliver our regular play activities with children on local estates, we also worked in partnership with Resonance FM on a 24 hour Bank Holiday Broadcast for and in collaboration with our local residents.
With your support we can keep the SLG free of charge and able to meet the challenges ahead, and continue to offer inclusive opportunities for people to be creative, to be inspired and to support wellbeing through the arts.
Donations will help the SLG to:
- continue to support artists by providing paid opportunities to exhibit work in a Covid secure way, take part in events, commissions and residencies;
- produce innovative digital content and events online while social distancing measures are in place;
- continue to provide a blend of creative resources and online exhibition tours for our partner schools in Southwark with activities for pupils to do in the classroom while exhibitions are closed;
- and devise new programmes in response to the changing social and political landscape, for example, our new project Making Sense, a collaborative online learning resource where partner schools, community groups and individuals can explore using creative practice as a tool for anti-racism.
