DCA Patrons

As a Patron of DCA you will contribute directly to the development of our programme, from the commissioning of ambitious new exhibitions to supporting new work by Scottish and international artists at all stages of their careers. Becoming a Patron will bring you into the heart of the organisation, with personal invites to a private programme of receptions and events, and a close relationship with our staff and trustees. We offer several Patron options so that you can build a tailored relationship with DCA at a level of support that suits you.

How we use your donation

We've been enriching people's lives through art, culture and creativity for nearly 20 years, and we're only able to do so thanks to the support we receive from donors and funders. As a Scottish charity (no. SC026631) all the income we get goes straight back to enabling audiences, artists and participants to see, experience and create.
