Arts at the Old Fire Station is a charity and social enterprise in the heart of Oxford, offering a range of performances and exhibitions for everyone, support for emerging artists and enterprising ways to sustain and develop art as a business.
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.
We share the building with Crisis Skylight Oxford– a training centre offering creative and formal learning opportunities to homeless and vulnerably housed people and a dedicated employment service which helps them find and keep jobs. The Crisis Skylight Cafe provides on-the-job training, as well as great city centre food and drink to the wider public.
We are a centre of excellence for creativity, participation and enterprise.
We are breaking down barriers between people and groups through artistic expression.
We are a place of change.
