Help secure the future of Cove Park by becoming a Supporter, Friend or Patron in 2021.

Cove Park launched a new Supporter, Friend and Patron programme last year, coinciding with our 20th anniversary, and we are happy to welcome all those that have joined us so far. Clearly 2021 will prove to be an equally challenging year for artists, organisations and charities working in the cultural sector. We are grateful for the support we received last year from Creative Scotland and several key trusts and foundations, making it possible to maintain our commitment to artists and to offer creative learning programmes in the immediate term for those in our local community and beyond. However, in this time of great uncertainty, the new lockdown means we continue to face a considerable loss in income from independently-funded residencies and partnership projects, which is vital for the delivery and development of our entire programme.

Please join us by becoming a Supporter, Friend or Patron in 2021 and help to secure Cove Park’s future at this critical time. We offer a number of ways for individuals and groups to support our work and take part in our programme: meeting the national and international artists we work with, taking part in exclusive events – such as readings, artist talks, screenings, summer dinners and studio tours – and spending time at one of Scotland’s most beautiful and inspiring locations. During this necessary period of temporary closure, we will offer various ways our supporters can take part and meet the artists we are working with, such as zoom talks, workshops and digital projects.

  • Supporters: £20 annual membership
  • Friends: £200 annual membership
  • Patrons: Donate £2,000

All those who support Cove Park will receive biannual updates on our work, invitations to special events and a 20% discount on our limited edition prints and artworks. We will acknowledge your support on our website and on the Thank You board at Cove Park.

We are also pleased to offer the opportunity to join Cove Park as a Programme Patron: donations of £2,500 or £4,000 meet the costs of a fully funded two-week or four-week residency for individual artists respectively. These awards provide artist’s fees, travel costs and materials allowances. Programme Patrons will be offered naming rights for the residency and invited to discuss their interests and requirements with Cove Park’s Chief Executive Officer, Francesca Bertolotti-Bailey.


Donations of any amount, large or small, make an enormous difference to our work and can be made directly from the green DONATE button on this page. Alternatively, please contact Francesca Bertolotti-Baileyif you would like to discuss bespoke ways of supporting Cove Park.
