Arts at the Old Fire Station

Great art for the public; professional development of artists; building the confidence and skills of homeless people.

Great art for the public: We want our reputation to be good quality art aimed at adults which takes a risk, asks a question and entertains. We want our audiences to have fun and be open to new ideas and different people.Professional development of artists: We support early to mid career artists from all disciplines with advice, subsidy, networks and promotion to help them become more successful.Building the confidence and skills of homeless people: We help homeless people choose their own labels by including them as audience, participant, trainee, volunteer, contributor or artist. This helps develop networks, build resilience and leads to more stable lives.A new kind of public space: We offer a public space which is shared by very different people and helps to break down barriers and promote solidarity.
