There are many ways of supporting us - through the gift of your time, resources or donations.

Get involved and you, too, can experience the buzz of helping to develop the museum, the prestige of bringing your clients to a reception in the gallery, or just having the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve been part of making The Lightbox happen.

We rely on your support to help us continue to provide our extensive exhibitions, workshops, talks and events programme. Please give generously.
