Qube in Oswestry will be developing its Arts programme after receiving a £15,000 grant from Garfield West Foundation.

The money will be used to develop community focused art projects that enrich the lives of local people and offer new opportunities for engagement with the arts.

Qube’s Arts Development Officer, Jim Creed, said: "We are incredibly grateful for the support the Garfield Western Foundation has given Qube and it will make a huge difference to our arts programme.

"Many of our short-term funded projects have allowed us to pilot ways of working through the arts with specific community groups. We now aim to develop a longer and more sustained programme of activities and exhibitions, reaching out to wider audiences."

Qube has recently released details of its autumn/winter programme, including workshops, wellbeing classes, evening talks, exhibitions and performances.

New tutors and guest artists will be leading workshops at Qube including; first time life class and creative book arts, letterpress printing, poetry, ceramics, and environmental arts.

Qube is also partnering with Arts Alive to show a performance of Pedlar’s Tales performance by Fetch Theatre Company. For further information about Qube Arts, events and courses, please call 01691 656882 or visit www.qube-oca.org.uk
