Wirral’s brightest and most active space to meet friends, enjoy the best breakout and national artists, socialise, relax, enjoy the festival and club culture and have a good time.
But also art with a social conscience. Festivals that directly facilitate shaping change in peoples lives. Art commissioned and created to add dynamic value to NHS. Birkenhead International Film Festival, life drawing and more.
Generally playing with and stretching the relationship between art, culture, music, festivals, social action and mental health.

The cousin of Bloom Building and Blossom Haus, Luft is the newest venue on the ODC campus.
An interactive and engaging space that houses much of our active and sessional work, a space to relax, engage in positive lifestyle activities and learn as part of a community of like minded people.
A 10 week creative project like no other.
If you love or have an interest in art or just want to try something new then this project is for you. Over 10 weeks you will be mentored and work alongside a fantastic team of local and national artists and designers.
Horizons will take you on a journey through amazing contemporary, explorative and traditional arts methods. It will help to expand your understanding, skills and thinking whilst having a lot of fun along the way.
Each week you dive into a different arts practice, like painting, design or screen-printing. Moving away from traditional forms of art and experimenting with new ideas, skills and methods, ending with an exhibition and party to celebrate the work you create during the project.
