I volunteer at Fabrica and learnt a lot, so now I am doing a degree in Fine Art. Also so many people in Brighton had benefited from Fabrica through the years it would be very sad if it could not continue.

Julie Rignell 5th March 2018

So pleased to see the target has been reached and exceeded and fingers cars crossed for this important contemporary art venue continuing to be a part of our vibrant city

Elaine Bewley 5th March 2018

Fabrica is one of the few contemporary art gallery in Brighton that can host large pieces and its work is invaluable not only to exhibiting artists, but to the support it gives to hosts of local artists.

LucyDay 5th March 2018

Fabrica has played a crucial role in the arts ecology of Brighton and the South East. It has an international reputation and to lose such an asset would significantly impact opportunities and enjoyment for current and future generations.

Jaca Memic 3rd March 2018

Little contribution to a great campaign. Art projects and institutions face difficult times and the importance of art for human well-being is often neglected and overlooked. Hope you reach your target by the end of March!
