Tackling Cost of Living with OVADA at Marmalade 2023

On Saturday 15th April, 10am – 3pm, we’re delighted to be taking part in the OVADA Jumble, as part of this year’s Marmalade Festival.

Marmalade is an open collaboration between different individuals and organisations in Oxford, who come together to help shape a better Oxford. The highlight of their calendar is the annual festival where groups explore work shifting power and delivering better services for everyone. It’s worth checking out all the other events they have coming up.

OVADA are are an artist-led arts centre with a warehouse gallery, studios and an engagement programme striving to reflect the community through supporting the delivery of artistic activities that are welcoming for all.

For the Jumble, over the Friday and Saturday, OVADA’s warehouse space will be filled with activities, workshops, and sharing money saving hacks. Waste 2 Taste will deliver a workshop to show us how to make affordable meals, there will be jumble sale stalls, mutual care activities and community discussion, and the SHARE team will be on-hand to help with sharing, with a small team of repairers either able to help with walk-in repairs on the day or point you to a future Repair CafĂ© (with our next one happening the day after, on Sunday 16th).

We’re looking forward to learning more ways we can help our community, hopefully supporting people on the day, and we look forward to seeing you there!
