The ONCA Gallery purports to link art with conservation issues. The result is a current exhibition called Feminism Politics and Coal Extraction which sounds as if the curators have been playing the sort of silly game played on ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’I A Clue’ whose competitors suggest one after the other words which have the least possible connection with their predecessors. I was extremely disappointed not to be confronted by a performance of women removing and burning their bras in front of a photograph of a defunct Welsh mine. Or Arthur Scargill in drag making a rant. Instead photographs from Indonesia of protests against climate injustice (whatever that means). No surprise that there is also being shown here a film called Sexy Killers. What next? Fred West The Musical? This also claims to be a Meeting Place. Presumably for those who have recently been sectioned.

ONCA's remit is to marry art and conservation. It's an idea that brings together a great selection of really interesting artists working in many different media. Brighton gets great art to buy and the ecology gets a boost as well. It's a win win. There are prices to suit every pocket and I challenge you not to want to leave with a new piece for your home. It's a refreshing change from the pointless, lurid splodges and the ubiquitous pictures of the beach huts and the pier that are so often encountered in Brighton galleries. Large, light and centrally located this gallery is a must for anyone visiting Brighton for the culture or locals wanting to expand their collection and it is all for some great causes as well.

This innovative gallery, which hosts a range of exhibitions that cover a host of ecological and environmental themes, is a true Brighton gem - seems like a true match for the green and charitable spirit of the city. I first attended and enjoyed the 'Ghosts of Gone Birds' arts and conservation initiative and the gallery also hosts various readings, theatre, events and child-friendly activities - keep an eye on http://onca.org.uk/about-us/ for details. In short, I really love this place.My friends and their kids do too. x

If I could run any gallery it would be this one. I'm a big believer in conservation and love the idea of using the arts to make this more accessible and spread messages through interesting means. The gallery is located a walk down from the train station and it often has events on, many in conjunction with wildlife groups which is a nice holistic approach. It's small but an interesting space, when I visited they used a small area outside to display works too. It does an important role and I really hope it continues.
