OYAP is proud and honoured to be a 2019 recipient of the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the MBE for voluntary organisations.


Thanks to all OYAP volunteers, staff, artists, participants and supporters past and present. We couldn't have done it without you!

OYAP Trust empowers young people, especially the most vulnerable, to make a difference to themselves and their communities through the Arts.

Kick Arts for online

Our 2020 Summer Term Kick Arts Programme has been postponed.


We are currently working with the Pitt Rivers Museum to reschedule the programme for the next academic year.

Kick Arts:

The recommendations from the Government on managing Covid-19 coronavirus to ensure the health, welfare and safety of everyone means we have taken the difficult decision to postpone our programmed activities for the time being.


We want to share the news that we are fortunate to be recipients of a grant from Arts Council England’s Emergency Response Fund. This funding is made possible through the #NationalLottery and its players. A huge thank you to you all.

This grant will contribute to our core operation costs in this difficult time, and to help us deliver some exciting new creative opportunities as soon as we can reopen.

Most importantly, along with the support of our local authorities, it will help ensure we are still here for young people, artists. and the local community once this emergency has passed.


Since the announcement of relaxations in the lockdown from July we are working hard to re-open Studi02 for activities and hire groups. It is likely that different services will be available at different times as we work to make the space as safe as possible for anyone.

Please bear with us whilst we plan for this.


We will keep everyone informed and look forward to seeing you at rescheduled activities.
