Artist support

We help artists make and showcase work, meet each other and share ideas. Theatre practitioners, visual artists and more receive support from us.

We love artists, and we want to support them. Some of the ways we do this are;

  • Discounted rehearsal space
  • Advice from a member of the team
  • Support with your funding bid
  • Support with your exhibition.

OFS doesn’t get a lot of core funding, so we can’t offer you money – but we always want to help where we can, so get in touch to see how we can work together. Performing artists should email, and visual artists should email
