The UK’s first free crowdfunding platform designed especially for museums and galleries, Art Happens helps you to raise money for creative projects with visible public benefit, develop your online audience and visitor engagement, and unlock a pool of new donors.
We are here to help our partner museums and galleries attract visitors, engage new audiences and generate income. We offer promotional support to more than 700 venues across the UK – not only museums who have received funding or support from us but also those who want to become our marketing partners.
Behind everything we do is an ambition to give everyone greater opportunities to see and experience works of art. We support a variety of exhibition, touring and interpretation projects – often directly related to acquisitions that we have funded – but we also look for opportunities, ideas and partnerships that will increase access to collections in different and creative ways.
In 2017, we're supporting British artists at the Venice Biennale, with the production of a book that explores Phyllida Barlow's installation at the British Pavilion, and helping to bring the Wales and Scotland exhibitions back home for all to see in 2018/19.
