What is the mima circle?

The mima circle is an initiative for supporters who wish to make an ongoing and important contribution to our vision. It helps us to invest in exhibiting, commissioning and collecting art engaged with society, delivering sustained projects in the public realm and providing educational opportunities for all.

We regard the circle as mima’s venture philanthropists.
