Institute of Contemporary Arts
In 1946, the Institute of Contemporary Arts was founded as a radical platform for the most pressing debates in contemporary culture. 

Independent organisations need independent funding!

ICA Members help us expand our programme by virtue of a democratic funding process, ensuring that we can stay truly independent while keeping our entry fees accessible to all.

Nobody values our ideas, our independence and our outspoken programme more than our members. Membership support is the most direct way to increase our funding and to enable our programme to thrive and grow.

If, for example, only 2% of our current half a million annual visitors decided to join the ICA as Red Members, this would generate a staggering additional £2 million of support for our programme – a game changer for independent culture in this city.

Your support translates directly into new works and exhibitions being produced, more live performances and plays commissioned, more radical voices being heard, more concerts staged – our publishing activities could flourish and our support for independent filmmakers could lead the field. 

Becoming a Red Member is the most effective way to translate a one-way conversation into a collective idea.
