Did you know

Fabrica is a charity with an educational mission: to enable more people to access, enjoy and learn from contemporary art. Keeping our exhibitions free is an important part of delivering this mission.

We have a well-established programme of engagement and audience development activity aimed at inspiring those who might not readily visit an art gallery. Over the years we have done great work to attract older audiences, for example. Our volunteering programme is one of the best in Brighton & Hove and we currently have around 200 volunteers on our books, including those with learning disabilities.

Funding from Arts Council England and other public bodies, including Brighton & Hove City Council, generally covers around 40% of the money required to maintain our programme. We spend a lot of time fundraising for the balance from a variety of sources.

Donate to us

The easiest and most direct way to support Fabrica is by making a donation. Your generous support will help us to:

• Present thought-provoking and ambitious exhibitions

• Support artists with practical advice, mentoring and through our residencies

• Provide inclusive and creative volunteering opportunities for people of all backgrounds to build their confidence and gain invaluable experience

• Deliver projects with older people, young people and children, giving them the opportunity to enjoy and learn from contemporary art.

We are delighted with any pounds and pennies dropped into our donations boxes in the gallery or at events. Or you can give online by hitting the button below.


Regular monthly gifts make a huge difference to us, no matter what the amount. If you’d consider making your gift a recurring one, we’d be ecstatic.

Leave a legacy

After you have provided for your family and friends, leaving a gift to Fabrica in your Will is a wonderful way to ensure that contemporary art continues to flourish in Brighton & Hove and that future generations gain as much enjoyment from our work as you do.

If you’d like to discuss your options to leave a legacy gift to Fabrica, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact our Business Manager on

Gift Aid

No matter how you donate, adding Gift Aid means that we can claim an additional 25% at no extra cost to you. If you’re a UK taxpayer, please complete a form in the gallery or select the Gift Aid option online. It’s quick, doesn’t cost anything and you only have to do it once!

Other ways of supporting Fabrica

Venue hire

In between exhibitions (and sometimes during) we hire the gallery out for social events like wedding and civil partnership receptions as well as conferences, meetings and launches. We’re particularly looking for mid-week bookings as weekends tend to be booked up well in advance. If you’re interested in hiring Fabrica, check out our venue pages.


We’ve teamed up with green energy company Ecotricity to make a different way for you to contribute to Fabrica. If you make them your energy supplier, Ecotricity will donate up to £60 to Fabrica.

Ecotricity was founded in 1995 as the world’s first green energy company and now supplies almost 200,000 customers, from a growing fleet of wind and sun parks, with the greenest energy available in Britain. Ecotricity is a ‘not-for-dividend’ enterprise that has invested more per customer in building new sources of green electricity than any other energy company in Britain.

So that’s one action for two reasons to feel good: switch your energy supplier to Ecotricity for a stake in a future of renewable energy and make a donation to Fabrica at no extra cost.
