About

Established in 2013 and located in Margate, Open School East is a free, independent art school and community space that focuses on collective learning through the arts. We support artists at an early stage of their career to develop and sustain their practice, and enable young people and adults alike to learn new and transferable skills, develop their confidence and shape their creative voice by becoming active learners and co-producers of OSE’s programmes.
