In just over a year since its transformation from a floating Chinese restaurant to the creative community space it is today, The Barge has been hosting a multitude of activities from yoga classes, art activities for young people, to team away days for charities and businesses alike, as well as being host venue to Brighton Festival and Brighton Fringe events.
The team at Brighton Marina are delighted to announce a new partnership with ONCA who will be taking over the management of The Barge from September 2018.
ONCA is an arts and environmental charity whose aim is to support the wellbeing of people and places by increasing awareness of, and engagement with, environmental and social challenges. They have a gallery in the centre of Brighton where they host talks, run education and outreach workshops, artist residencies and more.
Managing the Barge will be an opportunity to not only bring the wealth of art and culture they already curate to the Marina, but also a chance to extend their charitable activities to East Brighton and beyond.
“We are thrilled to be coming aboard the Barge this autumn. We can’t wait to start working with the residents and users of the Marina to explore what ONCA on the Barge can be,” says ONCA Director, Persephone Pearl.
