The Showroom

Every two years, The Showroom hosts a fundraising event that provides the organisation with the most critical and difficult funding to achieve – operational support. Your contribution will enable: key aspects of our exhibition programme; the continuation of our pioneering project Communal Knowledge; the production of our discursive events and publications; and our building to be fully accessible in 2020.

Your support will help sustain our mission to be a platform for emerging practices and ideas, where collaboration, criticality and learning are integral to the production of unconventional art and discourse. Our ground-breaking approach fosters experimental practices and reflects upon everyday life through its engagement with local communities. Contributions will enable us to continue bringing together art and non-art audiences, locally and at large, to produce projects advocating for art as a tool for collaborative research, transdisciplinary education and social justice. Thank you for supporting our vision and being a part of our family.
