Help us build The Colour Palace, a unique space for all of London to relax, create and be inspired this summer!

Founded in 1811, Dulwich Picture Gallery is the world's first purpose built public art gallery, designed by pioneering architect Sir John Soane. Now, we want to continue our legacy by building a space for the communities of today.

Created by Pricegore architects and designer Yinka Ilori, The Colour Palace was the winning design for the Dulwich Pavilion 2019, voted for by the public and a panel of industry judges as part of a competition run in partnership with the London Festival of Architecture.

Free and open to all throughout the summer months, The Colour Palace will create a much-needed flexible space for community activities and a vibrant events programme, including talks, workshops and Lates. Bright, bold, and interactive, it will continue our mission to open up access to the arts, breaking down barriers and welcoming new visitors to the Gallery.

A lively fusion of European and West African influences, The Colour Palace is a joyful celebration of multicultural London. It unites Pricegore architects’ and Yinka’s interest in creating cultural landmarks that support communities, generate meaning and evoke the stories of modern Londoners.

We need your help to raise the final £20,000 needed to build The Colour Palace, which has a construction budget of £100,000. Donate now and be part of making this unique space for all of London to relax, create and be inspired this summer.

100% of funds raised will go toward the building of The Colour Palace on site at Dulwich Picture Gallery.

You can choose from an exclusive range of rewards inspired by The Colour Palace design especially for this campaign.

Please donate today to help build The Colour Palace.
