In 2007, Fusion Arts and Pegasus Theatre joined forces to run Oxford Extra Arts, a multi-agency learning programme in which artists from various mediums such as drama, dance and visual arts ran after-school workshops for children from the Isis and Headington partnerships.
Artists worked with the children to create pieces of work to showcase at community events, including The Cowley Road Food Festival and the Jamboree at the Pegasus Theatre, where their work was presented in July 2006.
The project led to In-Tent-Arts, a series of after-school workshops that took place in twelve schools across Oxford city. The schoolchildren and artists worked towards a performance and the creation and embellishment of three art tents. The ideas were stimulated through an inset day for artists and school staff at Pitt Rivers Museum, using the treasures and objects in their magical collections.
