Support Our Work

We are a 100% volunteer-run organization. That means that every dollar you donate is spent directly on the educational, civic and artistic activities via one of our three main programs:

Your donation will enable us to work directly with artists to support creation of new works and projects to be presented to public of one of the biennials.

Your donation will help us develop knowledge about biennials and to educate people about biennials’ capacity to act as an engine for urban development, social transformation, and creation of a discursive public sphere. You will also help us to develop the next generation of artists, curators and cultural leaders able to navigate the global art world.

We believe that biennials create platforms for artistic, cultural and political expression in places where there are no real structures permeating the value of art and culture. Your donation will help us support networking among new and emerging biennials and the communities that host them.

If you’re based in US, your donation is 100% tax-deductible and we will be issued a receipt for the IRS.
