Join us in IOTA adventures!

Developing and presenting IOTA is an enthralling journey of discovery and delights - all of which would not be possible without the generosity of people who share in our vision of connecting cultures, expanding our horizons, exchanging ideas and skills across and around the Indian Ocean.

The collective support of big-hearted individuals, sponsors, institutions and government agencies makes it possible to inspire generations of makers, designers and thinkers through the IOTA exhibitions, projects and events.

There are a number of ways you can support IOTA and its continuation.

  • Inner Circle: join as a Founding Ambassador.
  • Give an IOTA: make a tax-deductible donation to support artist residencies and exchanges.

Or tell us how you'd like to join in:

  • IOTA United: collective support by pre-purchasing the IOTA24 catalogue
    (available in 2024).
  • IOTA Partisans: join a group of dedicated young volunteers (under 35s).
  • Sponsor: in-kind support is always welcomed.
