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.
The Inclusion Manager will help us increase opportunities for people facing tough times; help us learn from our work about what supports positive change, and influence the work and practice of others.
Your strong belief in the relevance of the Arts (visual, dance, theatre, music) in creating strong communities and increasing resilience in otherwise vulnerable people will be vital to this project. Your ability to organise complex projects across different partners and superb data organisation skills will help us to deepen our engagement with homeless and vulnerably housed groups, as well as increase the diversity of our volunteers and increase their commitment to us.
If you are well organised, have lots of energy, enthusiasm and the confidence to work with a wide range of people and have a passion for the arts, then visit our website to find out more www.oldfirestation.org.uk/vacancies
