About Photofusion

If you know Photofusion, you’ll know what a fundamental role we play in developing and supporting the creativity of South London’s photographic artists. You may also know that we run charitable outreach programmes that use photography as a tool to develop confidence, skills and experience in young people near to our Brixton home; building a bold and diverse pipeline of the professional and amateur photographers of tomorrow. Whether you are new to the art or a high-profile professional, photography brings us together as a very special and close community.

I hope you’ll also know that we’ve just moved to a new home. 2, Beehive Place is a fabulous new conversion at Brixton Rec, just next door to our previous abode. Lambeth council offered us this stunning new space so that we can grow and offer even more to our communities of makers. We’re so excited by the possibilities.

The boxes are nearly all unpacked now, but as I’m sure you all know, moving house is an expensive business, and there are a few things we need to make our whole community feel at home here. We urgently need to raise £20,000 to support the remaining building costs, meet our increased energy bills and buy the furniture and equipment we need to get us fully up and running.  For the first time in 8 years, we’re asking for your help.

Can you buy us a housewarming gift?

If you can spare a few pounds to feed the meter and keep the kitchen well-stocked, or you feel able to contribute to kitting out our quiet room and members' area:- anything you are able to spare is hugely appreciated, thank you.

£5 could help us keep the tea, coffee and biscuits flowing in the members' room

£25 could 'feed the meter' to help us light and heat our beautiful new space

£50 could support one hour of a Creators' Studio photoshoot that develops the skills and experience of the next generation of makers

£100 could contribute to acoustic treatment for the Quiet Room

£500 could provide comfy seating in the members' room

£1000 could provide external signage to help people find us

If you feel you would like to donate more or associate your support with a particular area of our work, please contact our Director Jenni Grainger at  [email protected]

Every donor will be thanked on a dedicated page on our website AND on a housewarming thank you display in our members’ area for the next year. (Or you are welcome to remain anonymous if you choose).

And as a further thank you for your generosity, each donor will be entered into a free prize draw to win a curated selection of 10 photo books. To enter this draw without donating, simply enter your details into this form.
