Many of you will know Ovada or have been supported by Ovada in recent years as artists.
Although based in Oxford, Ovada has supported many artists across the region. It's the sort of organisation I feel we could do with in Reading. Things look like they might be changing. www.ovada.org.uk
There is an open meeting to discuss the future of OVADA and the gallery space in relation to the planned redevelopment of the Old Fire Station building complex which is due to start mid 2010. The focus of the new development will be a Skylight Centre for Oxford, managed by the homeless charity Crisis which will open to the public in March 2011.
This meeting is primarily aimed at artists, as OVADA's major stakeholders, but it is an open meeting that everybody is invited to attend. They would like to share with you what they know about the development and how it will impact OVADA, and gain your thoughts and feedback on how the organisation could develop beyond 2010.
If you would like to attend, and be updated on more information prior to the meeting, please send your name and email address to Lucy Phillips, Acting Projects Manager at: firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively call 01865 201782.
