The Rockfield Centre
On the 13th of May 2015, the Trust officially took ownership of the former Rockfield School building in the centre of Oban with the ambition to transform it into a creative cultural hub for the town. You can visit The Rockfield Centre website here.
Read more in our Help Us Open The Doors leaflet.
Now we’re focussing on all the exciting things that will fill up the spaces: from artists’ studios to business start-up offices, exhibition space and group workshop rooms – anything is possible! So if you have an idea for a great business or project, get in touch!
You can find out more about the impact our activities are having in our Social Impact Report 2017.
To make all these great things happen, we’re doing some much-needed fundraising. Any donations, however small, are greatly appreciated.
