Since opening in 1998, TheGallery has delivered an exciting and cultivated portfolio of exhibitions, including those that have toured internationally, as well as events and panel discussions. It has commissioned projects building upon the creative collaboration between Arts University Bournemouth and industry. We seek to enhance the cultural capital of the students, staff and alumni whilst providing a public platform for the arts within the region.
In 2016, we were presented with the Award for Innovation in Design Education by The Sir Misha Black Awards Committee for our innovative approach to design teaching. We received special recognition for TheGallery and for commissioning the first purpose-built Drawing Studio in the UK for over 100 years.
