Arts at the Old Fire Station

South East

We are a charity and social enterprise in central Oxford. We focus on four things:

• Great art for the public
• Professional development of artists
• Building the confidence and skills of homeless people
• A new kind of public space

Each of these is important but what makes us distinctive is the combination of the three. We offer a public space within which all sections of the community, including those facing multiple disadvantage, can meet, learn, create and change. We do this through our beautifully refurbished building, our growing network of people and our partnership with the homelessness charity, Crisis.

We have a Shop selling original artwork, a Gallery with a wide range of exhibitions, a Theatre offering music and drama, a Studio for all kinds of dance, and workshops for artists to make work. We also have spaces to hire for classes, rehearsals and meetings.
