Poole Centre of Design

The Poole Centre of Design is an integrated series of programs organized and presented by the Art Gallery of Alberta.

Programs at the Poole Centre of Design seek to generate new ideas and discussion about contemporary issues in design. These programs encourage you to examine the daily design decisions–both large and small—that are made by and impact everyone.

From school tours and education programs to workshops, exhibitions and symposia, the Poole Centre of Design provides opportunities for people of all ages to explore design ideas.

The Poole Centre of Design is made possible by a generous donation from the John and Barbara Poole Family Fund, through the Edmonton Community Foundation. John and Barbara Poole were great patrons of the arts who believed in engaging people of all walks of life in art and design. The AGA is honoured to continue their legacy through the Poole Centre of Design.
