MARMALADE IS AN EVENT FOR SOCIAL CHANGE.
Marmalade keeps on growing and evolving, with more people and organisations using it as a platform for collaboration and interesting conversations all year round.
WHO ORGANISES IT?
Marmalade is an Arts at the Old Fire Station and Oxford Hub initiative.
Arts at the Old Fire Station is a centre for creativity in Oxford:
producing and presenting new work across art forms
helping people be creative
including people facing tough times because of disadvantage
working with communities cross Oxford
You can find out more about AOFS at oldfirestation.org.uk
Oxford Hub’s aim is to bring people and organisations together to make Oxford a better place for everyone. They run programmes that build new relationships in the community and support everyone who lives there to thrive.

We believe that relationships are the foundation for social change – relationships within organisations, across organisations, and between people with different amounts of power – including those whose voices are rarely heard.
In pre-COVID times we would have a week filled with a diverse set of sessions, activities, and an engaging arts programme to enable participants to connect with each other to bring about positive social change.
This year we have had to re-think Marmalade and, instead of organising lots of in-person events or yet another zoom webinar, we are working with social change organisations to pair people up to talk about the big social change questions at the moment. No big conference rooms, no 100-people webinars. Just a new acquaintance and an enriching meaningful discussion.
These discussions will be fed back to us and we hope to turn these into a Marmalade Recipe book.
Marmalade 2021, will run 12 – 16 April in a Covid-safe way.
