We invite you to join our community of Patrons, a network of liked-minded individuals who care about cutting-edge arts and culture in the heart of Plymouth
To retain this ambition we have introduced the Patron scheme, which replaced our Friends' scheme in September 2019.
The Arts Institute relies on income to develop and deliver a public programme, which not only promotes audience engagement and access to the arts, but also directly supports emerging and established artists' careers and the creation of new content.
Please consider a donation to The Arts Institute.
Thank you for your support.
We value your support
With fantastic benefits including priority booking, free tickets to all Arts Institute events and invitations to exclusive Patron events, our Patrons will play a vital role in supporting The Arts Institute Public programme, as well as our work with schools and the local community.
From world-renowned artist exhibitions in
The Levinsky Gallery to performances from internationally acclaimed musicians through our Musica Viva Concert Series, it would be our privilege to count on your support as we plan our programmes for the coming years.
Our Patron membership costs £500 per year, and if you are able to gift aid your donation – at no cost to you – your support can help us do even more.
The Patron fee is split into 30% membership and 70% donation.
The 30% membership contributes to the running costs of the public arts programme.
You and a guest will be able to:

Each season you can enjoy world-renowned artist exhibitions in The Levinsky Gallery; a diverse range of contemporary cinematic masterpieces in the
