Nurturing creative talent is at the heart of everything we do.

Since 1994, we have programmed over one thousand artists whose work has been experienced by over 416,000 people in 29 countries.

“From the beginning of my relationship with Cryptic, the moral and financial support I have received… has had a huge impact on my confidence as an artist.” Cryptic Artist

2020 sees Cryptic looking ahead to the next 25 years and we are depending on committed audience members and supporters like you to help us to continue nurturing the creative talent of tomorrow.

“It was a very enriching experience. Totally new in terms of environment, culture, duration… the exchange fed me beyond the artistic sphere.” Cryptic Residency Artist

As a Cryptic Angel your gift would provide a range of opportunities that make an invaluable contribution to artists lives. To date, our angels’ donations have enabled new collaborations, commissions, residencies and no end of installation and live performance events at home and overseas.

“To be in the same programme as such amazing artists… really gives me the inspiration and motivation to keep working and developing my practice.” Scottish Sonica Artist

We are reliant on as many people as possible making the same positive impact and in return, hope they can enjoy many of the same memorable experiences that have engaged and inspired you and others across the globe. Please support our artists to cross more boundaries and borders in 2020.

Cathie Boyd,
Founder and Artistic Director
