Save The Kube

by Chantal

The Kube art gallery is being forced to close at the end of January 2010. It is a purpose built, award winning art gallery in Poole, Dorset and houses an internationally significant collection of art.

The Kube is the only big visual arts space between Southampton and the Tate gallery in St Ives, Cornwall.

It has employed hundreds of artists for workshops and performances, showcasing work of local, national and international artists of real significance.

It has a world-class education programme, and offers workshops and activities for everyone from toddlers, to workers, to residents, students, artists and community groups.

This year has been the Kube’s busiest year, with 4 times more people visiting the gallery than last year. Despite this Bournemouth & Poole College has decided to withdraw its funding.

The gallery has been described as a national asset of an international standard and the Arts council have expressed their bitter disappointment at its closure.
