Step into Vanley Burke's home


Thanks to everyone who's already donated to our project, At Home with Vanley Burke. We really appreciate all donations – big or small.

We want to move the entire contents of Vanley Burke's Birmingham flat, including his archive, to Ikon Gallery for an exhibition next year – providing a unique insight into black British life from the 1960s to present day. Vanley's home in Nechells, north-east Birmingham, is a treasure trove of photographs, ornaments, books and more. Take a look at some pictures, below.

Donate now! Great rewards for all donors, from compilation CDs and placemats to an afternoon at Ikon hosted by Vanley himself. Plus, if you give the top donation – £450 – you'll receive a limited-edition Vanley Burke artwork.
