Following government advice about Coronavirus, Cornerstone Arts Centre is currently closed to the public. Visit our blog post for more information on this closure: here.
Cornerstone Arts Centre is still Didcot's community hub even in this unprecedented time where we can't be physically open. We will continue to illuminate theatre, visual arts, community spirit and everything else under our umbrella in the best way we possibly can online.
For a while, our website is going to look a little different. We are creating pages with details of our new digital initiatives including virtual galleries, streaming theatre and bringing classes into your living rooms so you can enjoy us even during this period. We will continue to be a community resource and we look forward to seeing you again in person when this is all over.

Exhibition by Sarah Moncrieff and prisoners at HMP Bullingdon.
Over the last year, prisoners at HMP Bullingdon have had art sessions with artist Sarah Moncrieff, producing work around the theme of 'Inside Spaces'. This was a chance for them to look at their envrionment and create pieces of artwork that represent what it means to them.
Artist Sarah Moncrieff believes that the art sessions enabled the participants to embark on a journey of creative development, increasing their self esteem. The art sessions allowed them to forget their troubles for a while and enjoy the pleasure of drawing or painting for its own sake. Participation in the art sessions has brought prisoners together and allowed exploration of identity, connection, mutual acceptance and encouragement. Their work is testament to their talents.
