Join our Journey

For nearly 25 years Iniva has been working to radically transform the visual arts landscape. To celebrate our quarter century we are inviting you to join our journey.

We work predominately with British born and British based visual artists of African and Asian descent, supporting them at different stages of their careers. Many of those we have worked with have gone on to change the course of art history. Turner Prize winners Lubaina Himid OBE and Steve McQueen CBE, Yinka Shonibare MBE RA and Isaac Julien CBE, Idris Khan OBE, Sonia Boyce MBE RA and David Medalla are among Iniva’s distinguished alumni.

By supporting us you will be helping to challenge conventional notions of difference and diversity. You will also be joining a debate on the politics of race, class and gender in the visual arts, and in our society. It is a debate that is just as urgent and important now as it was when Iniva was founded in 1994, and led by Iniva’s first Chair, renowned cultural theorist Professor Stuart Hall.

All support enables us to achieve our aims. It helps us work with partners nationwide to change the culture of commissioning and collecting the work of artists of colour in this country.  It helps us buy new books for our specialist art collection, the Stuart Hall Library, and to hold talks and discussions. It helps our work in schools, where artists work alongside psychotherapists using art to explore identity and values. It helps us support young artists with commissions, and young curators through our traineeships and internships paid at London Living Wage to transform the diversity of the workforce.
