We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in receiving funding from Arts Council England to run a programme of exhibitions and events that will take place at the OSR Project Space, and beyond, throughout 2015 and 2016. By creating time and space for artists and curators to produce critically engaged work that acknowledges the social, geographical and political context in which it is made, we aim to produce art that captures the imagination and connects people through different forms of participation. Additional support for this programme of work comes from a South Somerset District Council Arts Award and corporate sponsorship from Old Mill Accountants and Financial Planners.
