OYAP empowers young people to make a difference to themselves and their communities through the Arts. Their projects offer creative opportunities for young people in Bicester, Cherwell, Oxfordshire, and beyond, giving encouragement and support to those who have few chances to access art and culture. They work in partnership with other organisations and inspirational artists to create opportunities which develop young people’s creativity, confidence, employability and wellbeing.
They deliver a mixture of regular weekly activities, holiday sessions, and project funded work. Where they make a charge our fees are low and they offer free or pay what you can afford options as they believe their activities should be accessible to all.
Some of the projects they run include:
- Creative Minds – Use your creativity to explore and enhance wellbeing, make friends and get social again after the challenges of a year of restrictions and a global pandemic. See how the arts can improve life skills, reduce anxiety and increase confidence. Have fun, make friends, and have a time to look forward to.
- DJ workshops – Learn to mix music and explore tempos and beats in these monthly sessions with DJ G and start your music journey here.
- Drawing Club – Focus on your drawing skills in this popular session with a professional artist. Experiment with a series of fun techniques, test out different media and styles. No drawing experience required, just free up your creative energy and learn to express your ideas.
