History: Set up in 1995 Globe Gallery is a Not for Proﬁt organisation. We have a long history of working
with regional, national and international artists. Our aim is to bring contemporary art to as wide an
audience as possible, support artists through exhibition opportunities, provide volunteers with a great
learning experience and work closely with our community to encourage greater participation in the arts.
Funding: We currently receive funding through Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts for part of our
programme and Newcastle City Council. We are also fortunate enough to have the support of our
Landlords via a reduced market rent, long term volunteers and professional help from various
individuals giving their time and expertise pro bono. The funding landscape has become increasingly
difﬁcult and we have suffered signiﬁcant reductions in funding over the past two years leading us to
look towards increasing income through increased partnership working, project funding, managed
events sponsorship and donations.
There are a number of ways in which you can support the gallery:
You can become the proud owner of one of our limited edition Investor Certiﬁcates designed by seven
artists we have been privileged to work with- Chris Donald (Newcastle) Chris Dreier (Berlin), Helen Edling
(Sweden), Alexander Gorlizki (New York), Ben Jeans Houghton (Newcastle), Ant Macari (Newcastle),
Antonio Riello (Italy). These certiﬁcates are available for a minimum donation of £25.
You can volunteer your time, help us invigilate exhibitions, paint walls, hang shows etc and become part
of the team keeping the Globe going. All investors and volunteers are acknowledged on the name panels
in the main stairwell of the gallery.
Purchase from our Plan Chest
You can purchase original artwork or limited edition prints by regional, national and international artists
from our Plan Chest collection. All commission on sales goes directly into our programme. Please visit our online shop, or visit us to see a full range.

your valued support we are able to enjoy a bright future of great exhibitions, events and great art for
