The Old Fire Station on George Street opened in November 2011 and houses two separate organisations – Arts at the Old Fire Station, (a professional arts centre offering performance and rehearsal spaces, a gallery, artists’ studios, and a shop) and Crisis Skylight Oxford (a centre offering free education, training and support to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless).
Arts at the Old Fire Station believes art is for everyone. Everyone has potential.
What do we do?
The Old Fire Station is a public arts centre
• presenting new work across art forms
• supporting artists
• including people facing tough times
How do we do it?
We do this by focussing on:
• good quality relationships
• encouraging creativity and risk-taking
• offering a public space which is welcoming to all
Essential to delivering our shared mission is the participation of Crisis members (homeless people using Crisis’ services) in our work.
