A donation to the Live Art Development Agency directly supports artists, activities and legacies

Donations help make influential artists' development initiatives like DIY possible, support new publications and projects by extraordinary artists, and help us buy essential books and DVDs for our Study Room.

LADA welcomes donations of all sizes - we can make a little go a long way, and make a lot go even further. £20 can buy a book for LADA's Study Room, and £1,500 would fund a new DIY project. Your support can set great art and ideas in motion. 


Make your support go further

All donations will be doubled through the Catalyst Evolve scheme, supported by Arts Council England. 


Your contribution may be eligible for Gift Aid.

With Catalyst support and Gift Aid, a £100 donation will be worth £225 to LADA!




‘LADA reaches out deep and wide to both artists and audiences, getting to places that other arts organisations can only dream of. They are exactly the sort of creative, responsive and responsible organisation that we need to keep the arts in this country moving forwards in difficult times – and that's why I'm offering them my support through the Catalyst Evolve scheme.’ Neil Bartlett, artist

‘I have donated money to LADA for the Catalyst Evolve program, so it can be doubled. I would not be where I am today with my career and practice without LADA.’  Oreet Ashery, artist

'Go see your solicitor and make LADA the benefactor of your will.' David Hoyle, artist
