Multaka-Oxford is a project funded by Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund until November 2019 at the Pitt Rivers Museum and the History of Science Museum in Oxford. The project aims to create inclusive volunteer opportunities for forced migrants that use the museum collections to bring people together. The project works in partnership with local organisations Asylum Welcome, Connection Support (Syrian Vulnerable Peoples Resettlement Scheme), Syrian Sisters and Refugee Resource. A team of Multaka volunteers contribute their time, experience and skills to the museums as tour guides, event planners, exhibition producers, researchers, communications and administrative support.
The project is an example of partnership working between organisations, volunteers and the museums.
The networking event is free.
