British Culture Archive is a non-profit resource that relies on funding to maintain and continue our work documenting everyday life, society and culture in the UK. 

Our crowdfunder campaign which launched in 2019 is helping to provide essential funds to maintain our resource and enable us to set up exhibitions and workshops throughout the UK. It also contributes towards our long term goal of establishing a permanent gallery space and community hub in the North West which we hope to set up in 2020/2021.

The People’s Archive Gallery will be an accessible and inclusive space where we can showcase our archive documenting the changing face of everyday life, working class society and culture in the UK.

As well as a permanent home for our People’s Archive the gallery will showcase exhibitions from our featured photographers and hold community based events and workshops throughout the year.

“British Culture Archive is a much needed platform for social and documentary photography and an important resource in these rapidly changing times. An essential documentation of everyday life and working class culture is it was for many of us growing up in the UK”.
