Who are we?
ONCA supports the wellbeing of people and places by increasing awareness of, and engagement with, environmental and social challenges. We are a space for meeting, thinking, learning and celebrating art, always encouraging artists and audiences to ask big questions about difficult issues.
ONCA embraces diverse perspectives and needs by modelling and fostering inclusive creative practices. We are proud to help people imagine, and move towards, thriving futures. To do this, we partner with local and international artists and organisations. We specialise in creative learning projects with children and young people. We do all this from our gallery and performance space in Brighton, UK, where we host a range of events – some led and curated by us, and some by visiting artists and companies who hire the gallery.
Upstairs at ONCA we also run workspaces for artists, charities and businesses.
ONCA is a registered charity 1150539 founded in 2012.
What information do we collect about you?
The personal information we collect might include your name, address, email address and telephone number. We collect your contact details when you sign up for one of our events, join our newsletter, make a donation or become an ONCA member. We also collect information about you when you complete a survey or leave feedback at an event or exhibition. ONCA is responsible for any of the data collected in this way.
If you make a donation online or purchase a product from us, your card information is not held by us, it is collected by our third-party payment processors (PayPal & Sumup), who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions.
