Oxfordshire Youth Arts Network Directory
The newly formed OYAN Network, coordinated by Oxfordshire Youth Arts Partnership and funded by Artswork, comprises the cultural organisations in Oxfordshire whose work encompasses young people. OYAN aims to raise the profile of the benefits of youth arts, and work in partnership to deliver commissioned work. The new OYAN Directory was launched at a successful ‘Youth Arts Platform’ at The Guildhall, Abingdon on 4th October where commissioners from across a range of services were invited to hear case studies of the great work Arts Organisations undertake to solve issues from unemployment to severe disability or depression
