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 art programme of inclusive exhibitions, events and related 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 artists studios alongside our unique exhibition and education spaces. We also host a thriving associate artists programme, that offers opportunities for artists to collaborate and engage with each other.
