As a registered charity, the RBSA can only achieve its objectives with continued support.

The Society has been a vital part of the arts scene in Birmingham for more than 200 years, and is committed to encouraging artists and engagement with the arts through a varied programme.

You can join our Friends scheme or buy our art when you visit an exhibition. Make a donation or leave a legacy, and consider joining The 100 Club.

Your support will ensure continued free access to exhibitions and the development of our ongoing calendar of events. Everything we do is designed to benefit visitors, local communities, education establishments, and, of course, our artists and the promotion of the arts.
