The aims of our charity are detailed in our Articles of Association which were set out in 1912. These are: to nurture engagement with the visual arts, to encourage participation in the visual arts, and to support artists in the development of their practice.
Members and Associates of the RBSA are responsible for the delivery of the Society's charitable objectives, for its governance and financial stability, and for the management of its gallery, the RBSA Gallery. They elect a Board of Trustees to manage the Society and the Gallery, pay an annual subscription, which covers around 16% of our running costs each year, and volunteer their time to support the charity. The RBSA Gallery, located just off St Paul's Square in Birmingham, comprises two floors for temporary exhibitions, the ground floor Craft Gallery, three ground floor exhibition spaces for solo shows, a self-service cafÃ© and storage areas for the Society's Permanent Collection and archives.
