Oswestry Community Action, otherwise known as Qube, is a registered charity based in Oswestry. Its aim is to improve the quality of life for people in the Oswestry area through provision of a range of services including arts, education, community transport and care services, and volunteering. These services have been developed over time in response to local need - addressing rural poverty and lack of opportunities.
Qube Arts is embedded within the activities and ethos of Qube, offering a year-round arts programme of exhibitions, activities and outreach projects designed to take art into the community; to engage new audiences, reduce isolation and give opportunities to be creative and learn new skills. Our Youth Music project, Wizards of Oz(westry) aims to bring together new, budding and emerging musicians, aged 14-19, to create and perform music together across a wide range of genres, guided by local music professionals. Participants will develop their skills and confidence in listening, playing, writing, band-building and performing, finally staging their own gig in a local venue.
