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.

Our Online Studio – An Open Space for Everyone 11th October 2019


Our Online Studio shows you behind the scenes of our exhibitions, inviting you to meet artists, the Firstsite team and local communities connected to Firstsite, and join conversations to directly inform our exhibitions and events.

This space will give particular insight into our Arts Council Collection National Partnership Programme, allowing you to see the artworks in discussion and watch how the exhibitions are co-made with our community curators.

This Online Studio is also a space for you to feed into our creative community, sharing your artwork and ideas, and supporting and sharing the work of other artists, communities and creative organisations.
