The Charity

We are a thriving charity, promoting engagement in the arts, sciences and Cornish history through film, live events, exhibitions, lectures and workshops with our roots in artistic and technological innovation and local industry. 

Our vision is to be Cornwall's foremost state of the art venue and community hub providing exciting, inclusive and innovative entertainment, learning and development opportunities in the arts, sciences and history. 

Our priorities are:

  1. To develop The Poly as a premier venue for entertainment, inspiration and education across the arts, sciences and local history
  2. To encourage and support artistic, creative and technological endeavour and innovation
  3. To establish a centre of excellence to showcase the Poly's collections, archives and support historical research
  4. To contribute to the economic well-being of the area

To help us achieve the goals set out in our priorities we will develop our building to create an accessible and inspiring space equipped with state of the art facilities, engage with local and visiting populations to maximise participation and footfall and collaborate with partners and community organisations.
