New stretch target

British Culture Archive is a non-profit resource that relies on funding to maintain and continue our work documenting everyday life, society and culture in the UK. 

This Crowdfunder campaign has been a lifeline, enabling us to maintain and exhibit the archive across the UK - making powerful  documentary photography accessible to people from all walks of life. Any support we receive will help us to secure our long term goal establishing 'The People's Archive Gallery' a permanent free exhibition space and community hub in the North West.

The People's Archive Gallery will be an accessible and inclusive space where we can showcase our archive documenting everyday life, working class society and culture in the UK.

As well as a permanent home for our archive we will showcase guest exhibitions from our featured photographers and hold community based events and workshops for schools and community groups in the region.

Founded in 2017 British Culture Archive is a non-profit resource set up to document, highlight and preserve the changes within British culture and society through documentary photography.

Our mission is to educate, inspire and engage people with photography through our online galleries, community workhops and exhibitions

British Culture Archive are proud to work alongside a number of respected photographers, as well as giving a platform to photographers whose work has yet to be seen by a wider audience. Our ongoing project The People’s Archive documents and preserves the hundreds of images submitted to us by the public.

Our online galleries include many previously unseen images ranging from the 1960’s Mod Scene, Northern Soul and Punk. Through to Thatcher’s Britain, Social Housing, Industrial decline, Regeneration, Acid House, Protests and more.

The resource was started through a genuine passion of photography and a desire to preserve and document working class culture and everyday life in 20th century Britain. It has grown into a large archive and platform over the years helping to showcase and engage British photography with new audiences and younger generations across the world.




The People's Archive is our ongoing project and archive documenting YOUR images of everyday life, society and culture in the UK.

Since 2017 we have been collecting and preserving images submitted to our archive. The images are an invaluable resource and important record highlighting real life as it was for many of us growing up in a time before smart phones and social media.


Gallery Space

As a non profit resource we currently rely on funding and sponsorship to maintain our resource and exhibit our archive across towns and cities in the UK. All funding raised through our crowdfunder will go directly towards our permanent gallery space in the North West which we are looking to open in 2021.

The exhibition space will enable us to have a permanent home to showcase the archive alongside events, workshops and exhibitions from our featured photographers.
