Help us to raise £6000 by the end of April 2014
"Your support will enable us to continue to open up the black boxes of art, technology and social change so that more of us, around the world can get involved and make the magic happen for ourselves, our communities and societies, for a more inclusive and evolutionary art culture"

What gallery visitors said about Furtherfield in 2013
“A wolf in sheep’s clothing”
“Good for a brain bruised by advertising”
“Unexpected and unexpectedly awesome”.
Encouraged by success of our 2013 appeal, we wanted to find a way that we could keep in touch with our donors, and for donors to share and enjoy the work that we do. We also really need to build up ongoing support so that we can plan our activities and make the most of the funding we have. We have set up three different ways for you to support Furtherfield's ongoing work:
- Invitations to private views at the Gallery (3 per year)
- Opportunity to enter an annual auction to win a unique piece of artwork
- Regular updates on how your support is helping Furtherfield
In addition to the Network Supporter benefits, Patron benefits include:
- Invitations to VIP events at Furtherfield Gallery
- Networking events and other specially programmed events
- Priority booking for talks and workshops
- Listed for public thanks on the Furtherfield Supporters webpage and on the gallery walls at Furtherfield for 2014/5
Select this option if you would prefer to make a single or monthly donation amount of your choice to support Furtherfield
How your donation will help Furtherfield in 2014
There is so much we have planned for the year ahead, and your support will enable the following:
Furtherfield's 2014 programme of Summer exhibitions will feature the artists of Pirate Bay and their meditations on friendship and piracy, a futuristic encounter with Mexican artists Los Ferronauts and their critical lost railways exploration probe (with our friends at The Art Catalyst), and an exhibition exploring interpassivity with artists Nathaniel Stern, Erica Scourti and Jennifer Chan.
With your support our gallery Clear Spots programme will continue to act as a showcase space for emerging artists working at the intersection of technology and social change.
With your support in the Furtherfield Commons, our new community labspace, we will run the Ludic Science Club with Class Wargames, Reading the Commons a reading group with Tim Waterman, Research Associate (Landscape & Commons) and more hands-on, experimental creative technology workshops, such as those run by the brilliant Codasign, to get as many people as we can involved in building their own layer of digital culture with games, coding, physical computing, free software and creative tech recycling.
Thanks and respect from the Furtherfield team for your ongoing support.
