In response to Covid-19, we have closed the office and relocated most of our programmes online. This summer, the Despacito Art School is piloting a weekly programme of activities online and on the streets of Cliftonville under the name Doorstep Despacito. All other public activities will resume in September. Until then, please visit the Public Events & Short Courses page to find out about activities taking place offline.

Established in 2013, Open School East is a Margate-based space for artistic and collaborative learning that is free, informal, versatile and non-exclusive.

About

Established in 2013, Open School East is a Margate-based space for artistic and collaborative learning that is free, informal, versatile and non-exclusive. We equip artists at an early stage of their career with the tools to become resourceful and self-sufficient, and enable young people and adults alike to develop confidence and life skills, and shape their creative voice by becoming active learners and co-producers of OSE’s programmes.
