Support the Arts

Sydenham Arts relies on support to deliver an innovative array of artistic activities for the whole community and to achieve our charitable aims ‘to provide, promote and advance the Arts for the benefit of the public, in particular people who live, work and are educated in Sydenham and surrounding areas’.

Times are tough – sadly our core funding from Lewisham Borough Council has been cut.  We have reached a third of our target of £15,000 however in order to deliver a 2020 programme we need more steady income.  Monthly donations will help us, as will one off donations.  As a charity we can claim gift aid too.  Click through to the donations button below.

By supporting us financially your contribution will help us to continue to deliver a vibrant and diverse programme and make a difference in our community and help to achieve our charitable aims ‘to provide, promote and advance the Arts for the benefit of the public, in particular people who live, work and are educated in Sydenham and surrounding areas’.

Now in our 11th year and after 10 years of innovative summer festivals Sydenham Arts we have moved to year-round programming, giving greater opportunity for consistency and quality with optimum use of the Sydenham Centre.

We hold monthly film nights, Chamber concerts with local musicians enSEmble26, and continue our multi-arts offer with our Platform series (photography, music, dance, physical theatre, poetry and spoken word), whilst working with the best of local and emerging talent.  The summer will still feature the Artists Trail showcasing the talents of some 100 artists in over 20 locations.  All this with a programme of FREE events for our plus 60’s generation and workshops in St Bartholomew’s Primary School and Sydenham Girls School.

Can you be one of our new champions?
