Your support makes a vital difference to our work

House of Illustration is a registered charity and the UK’s only public gallery dedicated solely to illustration and graphic art. Our exhibition programme explores both historic and contemporary illustration and the work of defining and emerging illustrators, amplified by a pioneering learning programme and a vibrant programme of talks and events. House of Illustration is the only UK gallery commissioning illustration for public display and runs the UK’s only residency for illustrators and graphic artists.  

We curate nine exhibitions per year in our three gallery spaces. We support illustrators by commissioning work, and support emerging and early career talent via our annual Illustrator in Residence programme, specialist courses and masterclasses. We run an extensive learning programme for schools, families, teachers and people of all ages delivered by professional illustrators.

We need to raise over over 40% of our annual income from fundraising. Every donation, no matter what the size, is hugely valued and makes a real difference to our work. 

If you are a regular UK taxpayer, you can make your donation worth more to us, at no extra cost to you. For every £1 you give to us, the House of Illustration currently receives an extra 25p from HM Revenue and Customs.
