The Barbican sparks creative possibilities and transformation for artists, audiences and communities – to inspire, connect, and provoke debate. 

As a not-for-profit and a charity, we need to raise 60 per cent of our income through fundraising, ticket sales, and commercial activities. With the help of our generous supporters, we are able to share the work of some of the most inspiring and visionary artists and creatives, enabling the widest possible audience to experience the joy of the arts.  

We’re passionate about expanding access to ensure anyone can participate in art and creativity in London and beyond. From our work with local schools to provide unforgettable learning experiences, to development opportunities for emerging creatives, to discounted tickets to our events, your support helps us make a real difference every day.

There are many ways you can support the Barbican, including by making a donation,  joining our programme as a sponsor, or becoming a Member.

Donations support the Barbican Centre Trust Ltd, a registered charity in England and Wales (no 294282)
