Supporting us

DRAF is a non-profit independent organisation (registered charity in England and Wales No.1119738).

Together with curators and writers, DRAF creates new spaces for artists to develop ideas and practices and a platform to share them with the public. Last year, we worked with over 150 emerging and established artists and collaborators to deliver a programme of exhibitions, commissions, performances, events and research free to 12,000 visitors.

In order to develop and realise the full ambition of our innovative programme, we rely on the generosity of the supporters and partners who make a vital contribution to our work.

As a registered charity, all donations from UK businesses qualify for corporation tax relief. Donations from individuals who are UK tax-payers qualify for Gift Aid, which allows DRAF to claim an extra 25p on every pound donated.

Thank you to all our supporters and collaborators.
