In conversation with artists, friends and funders, we have made the hard decision to postpone Od Arts Festival until 14-16 May 2021.

It has been wonderful to share artists’ projects online over the last few weeks (and you can still read or listen to Bram Thomas Arnold’s Bibliotherapy for the Anthropocene and extracts from The Walking Reading Group: On Care).

But we think a lot of what makes Od special is being with each other, in person, in the Cokers. We want to play, talk, eat and make things together, and we want to include as many people as possible.

So we will wait, and hold the festival when it is safer to do so. All our programmed artists will remain commissioned and supported.

Though it will be a quieter year for many of us, OSR Projects is not going anywhere! We plan to develop a number of projects, including a forthcoming film and exhibition with painter Angela Charles and filmmaker Liberty Smith.
