Become a Partner

Every year the festival programme is enriched by our partner network of cultural organisations, academic institutions, businesses and industry bodies. Whether from British Film Institute to the Royal Academy, or the National Trust to the RIBA, our diverse partner network brings strength to the festival through a huge range of shared activities.

Throughout the year we work with over fifty partners to develop the festival, from choosing the annual theme to delivering individual events and initiatives. The LFA allows partners to raise their own profile, and reach new audiences by aligning their own programming or strategic objectives with the huge public presence of the festival.

In 2017, our partnership with the Dulwich Picture Gallery is being realised through a commission for a new events space to mark the gallery’s 200th anniversary. An extremely popular design competition led to an important break for emerging architects IF_DO, whose Dulwich Pavilion will be the backdrop for a summer of celebrations. Elsewhere, we worked with the Mayor of London’s economics team to produce valuable new research that demonstrates the huge economic value of London’s architecture sector.
