Art History Link-Up’s Supporters and Patrons Schemes

Support a bright future for young people in the arts!

Art History Link-Up is launching a Young Patrons Scheme for those aged between 18-45 who are passionate about the future of the arts. For more information about the scheme and our inaugural Young Patrons committee, Taymoor Atighetchi, Emma Mansell. Elle McPherson-Yoon and Flora Vesterberg please see here.

Membership is from £250, which supports a state sixth former in studying A level Art History for a term with AHLU, online or in museums and galleries.

Members are invited to lectures, discussions, and events in association with Art History Link-Up’s partners, including Christie’s and Inigo, and other member organisation, and to become part of AHLU’s community.

Art History Link-Up is a registered charity, founded in 2017. We offer Art History courses free of charge to state supported students in museums and galleries, and online. The majority of our students are BAME and / or from backgrounds that are under-represented in the sector. Our flagship programme, Art History for Everyone, offers free Art History A level and EPQ courses taught on term-time Saturdays online and in museums and galleries, while our Introduction to Art History courses address the needs of younger secondary age students, aged 13-15, to find out more about art history and careers in the sector.

Most AHLU students say they want to study the arts at university and pursue careers in the arts as a result of taking our courses.AHLU alumni are currently studying Art History at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge,The Courtauld Institute of Art and many other Russell Group universities, including Edinburgh, Exeter, St Andrews,Warwick and University College, London.We believe that studying art history is transformational for our students – they tell us so themselves – and that they in turn have the potential to transform the sector.

We also have a Supporters Circle, from £500 upwards which supports a state supported student in studying Art History A level for two terms.

And a Gold Patrons circle, from £1,000 upwards supports a state student in studying for an Art History A level and Extended Project Qualification for a full year.
