“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.”
