The Ark-T Centre is proud to support The Martha Mary Fernback Annual Prize – a legacy fund to honour the life of Oxford teenager, Martha Fernback, who died aged 15 from an accidental ecstasy overdose.

The Martha Mary Fernback Annual Prize supports young women throughout Oxfordshire from disadvantaged backgrounds who have faced exploitation. By using the art of creativity to encourage self-expression and to form dialogue, young women are supported on their journey of personal growth and transformation. Trauma counselling, monthly mentoring sessions (by an established female artist) and life-coaching are also provided as part of this annual prize.
