CIRCA 23rd December 2020

In support of transdisciplinarity and togetherness through art, education and community, our very first #CircaEconomy donation is going to support The Showroom. Lead by the inimitable Elvira Dyangani Ose, we witnessed first hand the incredible dedication and passion that you all apply to unite people through art, education and social justice. We hope that this contribution inspires others to help you reach your final target goal. Anyone reading this - please donate! Merry Christmas x

The Showroom is uniquely important for its community and London at large. We should do everything we can to support its vital message and work.

I’ve only been in London a few years, but I love to see a Black led gallery initiative and the wonderful Black women artists I’ve seen through your work.

All donations, no matter their size, receive a thank you GIF of artist Cauleen Smith’s current COVID MANIFESTO launch video for CIRCA at Piccadilly Lights. Our exhibitions and online content are free, but producing them costs money, so by giving here you will be becoming both a donor to the arts and giving to a vibrant and mixed community in London.
