Open School East

We are located on the ground floor of the Pettman building, below Resort Studios, in Cliftonville

Open School East is an alternative art school that serves as a space for artistic learning that is experimental, versatile and highly collaborative. We run two mutually reinforcing strands:

A free, year-long learning and studio-based programme for emerging artists – the ‘OSE associates’;

A multifaceted programme of free events, activities and training open to all.
