Event description
Displaced Voices

About this event

Somerville College has supported refugees since the 1930s and became a University College of Sanctuary in 2021. Examine forced migration against a backdrop of conflict, climate change and development, while students share their lived experiences as refugees and volunteers. You’ll hear Displaced Voices, a collaboration with Oxford Spires Academy, bridging cultures through music. Composers worked with young asylum seekers to create orchestral backing for their poetry, which highlights their cultural heritages and new lives in Oxford.

This event is offered in-person in Somerville College, and also as a simultaneous digital live-stream. Please ensure you choose the correct ticket type for your preferred attendance.

IF Oxford uses Pay What You Decide (PWYD) ticketing so you can choose to pay whatever you want, or can afford. You can make your donation during booking or after the event and the amount you pay is up to you. A suggested donation of £5 per person for each event enjoyed will help secure the future of the Festival.

IF Oxford is run by The Oxfordshire Science Festival (charity #1151361) and your donation may be eligible for Gift Aid, where a charity can claim back an extra 20% of your donation at no cost to you. Gift Aid forms can be downloaded from www.if-oxford.com/donate

COVID security

With a sizable number of staff, performers, volunteers, and indeed the public, not yet fully vaccinated, we encourage our visitors to continue wearing masks and to practice social distancing so that we can all feel safe and protected. We see this as an important step to protecting everyone involved in creating culture in Oxford, and kindly request that visitors remain considerate during this time. In the event of a change in COVID status, the Festival reserves the right to convert in-person events to digital if required and will inform all ticket holders of any changes.
