Launching ONCA on The Barge

Events Arts Spotlight on

After months of dreaming and scheming, ONCA now has the keys to its second space: The Barge at Brighton Marina. We are honoured to be the new custodians of this magical community space. We imagine a creative environmental learning centre accessible to everyone and packed with arts-based activities and events that inspire people about sea, coast and community.

We’ve always conceived of ONCA as a learning space as well as an art gallery, and are thrilled now to have an additional space dedicated to creative play, conversations, environmental exploration, citizen science and messy art-making. It will help us connect with participants who don’t access the arts or spend time in the city centre, and develop as an arts and environment learning hub, growing networks and conversations nationally and internationally. We are co-developing an Arts and Culture strategy for The Living Coast; having access to this marine space will support our evolution as a learning hub making the links between creativity and sustainability and promoting The Living Coast’s messages.
