Support Us

Spike Island is a thriving creative ecology that is home to artists, designers, students and other practitioners. It is unlike anywhere else in the United Kingdom as a place for the production, exhibition and discussion of contemporary art and design. We are charity and, while approximately 85% of our income is self-generated, we rely on outside sources to make the work that we do possible.
 
Our vision is to position art as central to society, and we do this by fostering a dynamic, inspiring and challenging community of artists and audiences. We bring the most compelling artists and designers from around the world to Bristol to share their work and ideas, and also provide professional development opportunities for artists from the South West who exhibit, collaborate and teach nationally and internationally. This manifests itself in a year-round programme of exhibitions, talks and activities, many of which are free, that invite the public to enter into these conversations and processes.
 
Your donation, however great or small, enables us to carry on this unique and important work.
