Pool School Gallery places art at the centre of everyday life for the communities of Camborne, Pool, Illogan, Redruth & the Mining Villages. Young people from Pool Academy are supported to design and deliver a programme of workshops and exhibitions. Our gallery is experimental, ground-breaking and ambitious.
