Launched in late 2017, The Circles of Art is a members-only, not-for-profit organisation with a mission to provide financial assistance to smaller museums and galleries that do not necessarily have access to resources elsewhere. We also offer funding to art-based programmes for children with chronic conditions.
We deliver this by organising and leading an exciting programme of exclusive, paid-for events. Our events are arts-related, and there is always a great friendly interaction of our members. In particular our regular ‘Day in the Country’ is a popular sociable feature for furthering friendships.
Standard annual membership is £200 per person and includes regular and informative newsletters which include details of forthcoming events. Membership also provides an excellent opportunity to meet people with a shared passion for the arts and of course gives exclusive, personal access to some of the most prestigious art-related events and venues.
If you represent a small gallery or museum and would like to apply for financial assistance, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your organisation and we will issue you with an application form. Organisations that have benefited from our small grants programme include The Bank Arts Centre, The Friends of Hopwood Hall Estate, Hogarth’s House Museum, The Salisbury Museum, The Mouth and Foot Painting Artists and Gainsborough’s House Museum.
