Opportunity Description

U.S. Multi-State Deadline: June 1, 2021 – In the United States, our political sphere has been tumultuous. Our social sphere has unresolved issues.

Oxford Community Arts group was formed in 1998 to bring a community arts center into being. An opportunity was identified when Miami University was about to dispose of the large, historic building that was once Oxford College for Women. A group of 12 formed a steering committee to save the building as a center for the arts in our area. The Oxford Community Arts Center was incorporated in 2001.

Our mission is to enrich lives and build community by providing, celebrating and promoting a diverse array of cultural and arts programming, performances and exhibits; to carefully  preserve the historic Oxford College building and campus as a welcoming environment offering classroom, studio, rehearsal, concert, theatre and meeting spaces; and ENSURE the Center’s ability to serve future generations as a catalyst, connector and magnet for emerging and established artists, performers, students, visitors and arts organizations.
