As of 2022 we’ve retired our Friends Scheme! Thanks so much to our wonderful Turf Friends for their support over the years. Check out the other ways you can support us instead.
Turf is the first entirely artist-run contemporary art space in Croydon, founded in 2013 by Croydon locals. A registered charity, we’ve supported the work of over 400 artists to date through a programme of free exhibitions, workshops & events. We also run two collectives (MOSS: a collective of local learning disabled artists and Art Press: a collective of local young artists), a support & residency programme for Croydon School of Art students, family workshops, a youth programme, projects with local schools & more.
For a donation of £35 you can become a friend of Turf. Your help will allow us to provide high quality, paid opportunities for emerging artists & help to make contemporary art available to everyone. You’ll also receive:
➮ 25% discount on all Turf Projects editions & publications
➮ 25% discount on use of our workspaces
➮ Invitations to exclusive artist and curator-led tours of new exhibitions
➮ Access to any fully booked free workshop or event
➮ Credit on our website & at the gallery (if desired!)
As a registered charity, Turf sales are non-profit, so your purchase goes back into keeping our programme running & free to all. The money might end up as one of our free exhibitions, workshops & events working with early career artists, help support one of our local artist collectives MOSS & Art Press, continue our support & residency programme for Croydon School of Art students at the beginning of their careers, or go towards our reserves helping us to build a stable future for Turf.
Wherever it ends up we’re all very grateful for your support. We’d also love to see where your products end up – tag us on instagram @turfprojects.
Est 2013, Turf is Croydon’s homegrown art space; free exhibitions & workshops, studios & collectives run by creatives for creatives. Find more about us here ( ･ิ ͜ʖ ･ิ)
