How can I help?

Our Friends of The GAP Scheme is an opportunity to support young people's creativity and be part of their future

at The GAP. By becoming a Friend of The GAP with a regular subscription, you are helping us to continue to offer quality, meaningful, creative opportunities and facilities for young people locally and across Birmingham. In return you can enjoy a range of benefits, including priority news and booking, invitations to all exhibition previews, and more.


What will my Friendship achieve?

The GAP team is supported by a diverse and committed board of trustees, and we run our delivery on a patchwork of project funding. But competition for funding is fierce, and as yet we have no core funding to make sure our doors stay open to young people. Your Friends of The GAP subscription will be put to good use in any number of ways, such as:

  • Providing further creative opportunities for young people

  • Helping to put on more free events for children and families

  • Improving facilities and resources

  • Developing volunteer experience and training

  • and many more.

What benefits can Friends of The GAP expect to enjoy?

  • Acknowledgment on our website, social media and in any publications

  • Early bird offers e.g. 20% discount on theatre tickets

  • Special invitations to all exhibition previews with complimentary drinks

  • A 20% discount voucher to use in our community café, The MIX
