Can you help keep Firstsite fantastic, fun and free?

The impact of shutting Firstsite has been huge for us and the communities we work with, which is why we are reaching out to you to help us.

Whatever you can give today can help us continue our work, collaborate with more communities and find creative solutions to the world we find in front of us.

Art is where the home is

‘Art is where the home is’ brings you a programme of art activities to do within the home, with the aim of helping families to stay creative during this difficult time.


Our activities are for everyone – though particularly perfect for children and young people to do at home along with parents and carers. Each one is designed to be fun, educational and bring us all together through art and imagination.

Artist Activity Packs

Stay inspired with Firstsite’s artist created activity packs, featuring contributions from some of the world’s best artists. Each pack is full of ideas about how to get creative at home!
