Help Reopen Charleston!


Join our crowdfunding campaign with Art Fund to raise the final funds needed to reopen that pink door, and make Charleston a place where everyone can image life differently. 

We have just 4 weeks to raise £160,000 to adapt, remodel and programme ready to welcome visitors back to Charleston next spring. Every pound donated towards the target will be doubled through marvellous match funding.

As a thank you for your donation you can choose from a selection of exclusive, Charleston-themed rewards and experiences; from tote bags and limited edition prints, to private tours and even a photoshoot in the iconic studio!
