Opportunities

Art opportunities in Oxford at OVADA.

Welcome to OVADA – A contemporary art space in Oxford

OVADA (Oxford Visual Arts Development Agency) facilitates experimental visual arts research and practice as well as professional development opportunities for both emerging and established artists. We also seek to promote critical debate and the exchange of ideas without prescribed outcomes.

We offer an interdisciplinary programme of inclusive exhibitions, events and educational opportunities that aim to develop new and diverse audiences for contemporary visual arts practice.

Continuously striving to foster a vibrant and inclusive Oxford visual arts community, we house five artist studios alongside our unique exhibition and education spaces. We also host a thriving associate artist programme, that offers opportunities for artists to collaborate and engage with each other.

OVADA’s Warehouse Space

We are housed in a unique semi-industrial building that offers flexible spaces for a range of activities including five Artist Studios as well as spaces to make and share work including an art room where we run classes and events.

We host a programme of exhibitions within our large warehouse space and are happy to consider strong exhibition proposals that wish to explore using the space.
