Oxfordshire Kindness Wave
Populate Co-op is proud to co-lead a project called Oxfordshire Kindness Wave.
Since March 2020, Oxfordshire Kindness Wave has built a movement powered by love, kindness, comfort and hope, whilst providing much needed positive activity throughout this pandemic. This project has been made possible by a partnership with Ark T and Oxfordshire Virtual School Looking After Learning for Children and Young People We Care For.
The Workshop Studio
Managed by Populate the studio is home to a small number of professionals who share our ethos and often contribute to our events and projects.
Populate is always on the look out for spaces it could manage to offer affordable studio space within Oxford.
Access to a working bicycle has a big impact on day to day life for refugees in Calais.
We incubated this project from 2015 when this project made three trips to the refugee camps in France, built a bike workshop in the aid distribution centre and supplied tens of bicycles. The project now sits with My Bike Repair CIC.
Bee Saviour Behaviour
Through innovative products, events, campaigns and citizen science Bee Saviour Behaviour is inspiring a community of Bee Saviour Citizens.
Populate Co-op is proud to have incubated this new co-operative as it built an innovative offer that crowdfunded £27k to establish itself as a pioneering community of interest in July 2019.
Virtual School of Art
Our Virtual School of Art brings young people together working across Oxfordshire to deliver art workshops in partnership with Oxfordshire Virtual School for Looked After Children. These workshops involve making series of artworks using a range of techniques from graffiti, printmaking through to painting and design work.
These arts workshops will culminate in a final exhibition at Oxford’s community arts centre Ark T in Temple Cowley.
