Oblique Arts is an artist led organisation. We enable communities to work with us to explore their creative potential through high quality visual arts projects. We provide unique creative workshops, projects and multimedia installations for the public, individuals and groups to inspire and educate. We use the arts to encourage critical thinking and creative action. We specialise in working with at risk young people and hard to reach communities.
