Join the ONCA Gallery in turning a hope into a reality – creating a unique space to explore ecology and the arts.
We need companions on our journey…
The ONCA Gallery began as an empty shop, and now eighteen months later it is a busy and vibrant contemporary arts venue in Brighton. In the heart of the city, ONCA is a place to learn about, engage with, and help safeguard the living world, through exhibitions, workshops, film nights, creative writing, storytelling, parades, puppet shows and more.
We are the only inner-city gallery for combined arts and ecology and we act as a hub, bringing the wild into the city, to new people, different people and brilliant people.
Since our launch in 2012, ONCA has hosted over ten exhibitions. We are constantly expanding our network and forging new links with universities, businesses, cultural facilities and conservation groups. Our patrons are Brighton’s Green MP Caroline Lucas, artist Chris Drury, writer Robert MacFarlane and illustrator John Vernon Lord.
We have worked with Ghosts of Gone Birds, Cape Farewell, The Marine Conservation Society, Plymouth University, Brighton University, the Sussex Wildlife Trust, BBC Earth Unplugged, many local schools, and the Uummannaq Children’s Home in Greenland, among other amazing organisations.
Our team of volunteers, artists, scientists and performers work tirelessly, giving their time to make ONCA the vibrant and inviting place that it is today.
But we need your help to keep this dynamic space open and evolving.
