Explore Oxford on foot or from home through stories about the past, present and future of human rights across the city. Take this 13-stop tour to learn about key figures and issues shaping Oxford’s relationship with human rights.
Right to Roam invites the local community of Oxford, visitors to the city, and those visiting us online to explore and learn about the disruption to the status quo in Human Rights discourse caused by some key figures and events in Oxford’s history.
Stopping at 13 locations, explore the city through our suggested route and at your own pace as you listen to the inspiring stories about the people who took action and the events that transpired.
The tour is accompanied by photos, videos, and audio clips, and will be a permanent route available to do in person or online.
In collaboration with the ‘Conflictorium’ in Gujarat, India, installations have been adapted from their museum to add interactive elements to our tour. Along the route, experience the ‘Sorry Tree’ and ‘Silhouettes’ – check out the related BXtra posts for more details.
So, get your walking boots on or tie up your virtual laces and enjoy seeing the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ in a new light!
The Right to Roam walk was produced and curated by Amy Powell, Charlotte Clifford, Emily Warren, Omar Ibrahim, and Sophie Botsford, all studying the MA in Development and Emergency Practice. It was created in collaboration with Conflictorium, a participatory museum that addresses the ideas, questions and structures of conflict.
