About this event

A discussion around the current exhibition at Tap Social Botley

Shafiur Rahman, documentary filmmaker and curator of the exhibition, discusses the case of Rohingya refugees. He examines the case of Rohingya refugees, how they are represented in photography and argues that the complexities of refugee lives are reduced for the sake of expediency.

Venue sponsored by Tap Social Movement.

Raising Awareness of Human Rights through the Arts
 
FOUNDED in 2003 by MA students on the Development and Emergency Practice programme
which is run by the Centre of Development and Emergency Practice (CENDEP) based within
the school of Architecture.  
 
OUR AIM is to raise awareness of human rights issues through informative films,
performances, talks, workshops, and exhibitions.
 
THE FESTIVAL IS CURATED AND LED by students and the organising committee
which is open to all undergraduates and postgraduates across the university including
Film Studies, Business & Marketing and International Relations.
 
FESTIVAL THEMES have included IDENTITY, HOME and ACTIVISM and we have
explored what these mean in terms of gender, sexuality, race, ability, class, wealth,
religious beliefs, forced migration, homelessness, nationality and much more. 
 
PAST EVENTS  2017 Ken Loach opened the OXHRF with a screening of his highly
acclaimed film I, Daniel Blake. 2016 Ziauddin Yousafzai, father of equal education
activist Malala Yousafzai, spoke at our screening of their film He Named Me Malala.
 
 
WE WELCOME sponsorship and collaborations.
 
 
 
Film, music, performance and arts are all part of our expressions.
