Established in 2004, OVADA is the Visual Arts Development Agency for the City of Oxford and the County of Oxfordshire.  It is an umbrella organisation delivering services directly and in partnership with others.  In 2005, the organisation undertook the renovation and expansion of the X-Change Gallery in Gloucester Green and re-launched the dedicated visual arts space as OVADA Gallery.  After five years of successful exhibitions and events, OVADA vacated the Gallery in summer 2010 to allow for the re-development of the Old Fire Station complex. Having moved into an incredible semi-industrial warehouse in the centre of Oxford on Osney Lane in 2012, OVADA will continue to work with its stakeholders to present an exciting programme of projects across Oxfordshire in 2013.
