The Studio Voltaire Supporters’ Scheme

By joining The Studio Voltaire Supporters’ Scheme, you will directly contribute to the sustainability, ambition and future development of one London’s leading independent arts organisations.

We develop a close and reciprocal relationship with all of our Supporters, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a tailored package of benefits whilst enabling Studio Voltaire to flourish and increase the amount of support and opportunities we offer to artists, audiences and our community.

Studio Voltaire’s supporters play a vital role in sustaining our key activities, from the commissioning of major new exhibitions and events, and the development of our pioneering participatory, learning and offsite programmes, to the provision of much–needed residencies and affordable onsite studios for artists.

Studio Voltaire is a registered charity and part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio. All of our exhibitions, participatory, learning and studio programmes, as well as 96% of all overheads, are fundraised for in their entirety through the patronage of individuals, sponsorship, trading and funding from charitable trusts and foundations.
