New Patrons



It all starts with your commission. And everyone can become a New Patron, an opportunity that thousands in Europe have seized to realize hundreds of projects. People from all walks of life have gotten involved to commission art. Now it’s your turn! Write us or give us a call. We will put you in touch with the mediator for your region. Or contact one of our New Patrons network anchor points; these institutions and organizations work closely with our mediators.

The New Patrons aren’t everywhere yet. So if we do not currently have someone who can work with you in your community, we will still listen to your concerns with great interest and do our best to tackle your project in the near future. What is it that you would want from art? What would you like to turn into an art project? Which issues aren’t getting the attention they deserve? What needs to change in your immediate environment?
