Be part of our unique journey and become an Artichoke Heart.

Artichoke Hearts is our Friends' scheme. Hearts are the first to hear about our projects in the making, and are invited to previews, opening night parties, artist talks and curator-led tours. They get behind the scenes and have access to our VIP Members Lounge during events, along with a host of other benefits.

There are three different levels of Artichoke Hearts in addition to our basic Seeds membership. Shoots, Blooms and Globes memberships include a minimum payment to secure all benefits and a suggested donation towards our work. For more details please click the links below.

We need your help to continue to:

  • Create extraordinary art for all
  • Support groundbreaking artists
  • Transform urban landscapes
  • Change young people's lives
  • Bring communities together

Artichoke’s projects welcome hundreds of thousands of people to enjoy extraordinary art in cities, the countryside and on coastlines around the UK. Artichoke’s events offer audiences from all backgrounds the chance to experience installations by leading artists for free.

Our unique participation programmes also help young people and communities gain new skills and create spectacular artworks together with professionals.

“Becoming a Heart isn't difficult. It's a joy. The accessibility of public art for all is the main reason I am passionate in supporting a collection of minds that excite and inspire a city.”

~ Oona van den Berg, Artichoke Heart ~
