Goldsmiths CCA is reliant on the support of individuals, trusts and foundations and corporate supporters to deliver an exceptional exhibition and engagement programme. As a charity, with no public funding, you are invited to support Goldsmiths CCA by joining us as a Patron, across three levels.
Income generated from Patrons enables us to deliver an innovative programme of newly commissioned works, exhibitions, educational activities and events whilst showcasing both established and emerging artists. The CCA is free and open to all.
