As the centrepiece of their 15th year, the Oxford Human Rights Festival present a selection of artwork made in response to the 'refugee crisis' in Europe. Refugees from the camps in Calais, as well as those who have found a safe haven here in the UK, explore the theme of 'home'.

About

What does 'home' mean to you? Love? Security? Family? Belonging? Identity? Loss? Fear?

 For forced migrants, 'home' is a fractured concept. It represents somewhere they are fleeing; somewhere that is temporary, unsafe, unwelcoming; somewhere unfamiliar to build a new life – to survive. When displacement lasts five, ten, twenty years – or more - home becomes a translocal property: home is here and there simultaneously.

This exhibition represents just one part of a programme of films, documentaries, art and performance exploring the theme of ‘home’.

The Oxford Human Rights Festival is run by students on the Development and Emergency Practice Masters programme within the School of Architecture.
