Support the Old Fire Station.

We are an arts centre in central Oxford presenting great shows, exhibitions and classes for the public.

We support early career and untrained artists to make and promote their work.

We help homeless people build confidence and skills by being part of what we do as audience, trainees, volunteers and artists.

You can give to our core costs to keep us open, or you can choose a specific project to support:

Arts at the Old Fire Station

Donate to support local emerging artists, and build the confidence and skills of homeless people

Arts at Old Fire Station is a unique charity. No other arts organisation in the UK has such a close relationship with Crisis, helping homeless people to develop confidence and skills, whilst simultaneously supporting artistic talent in our theatre and exhibition space, and facilitating a crossover between the two. Here, a homeless person can be an artist, volunteer, or audience member. Some are now members of staff.
