Birds of a Feather
Migration: Courage, Possibility and the Quest for Freedom
An art and music partnership project between Cowley Road Works and Freewheeling, which seeks to embrace all the people of the world who venture forth in search of opportunity and sanctuary.
The history of our planet is made up of human and animal migration. We all have an opportunity to learn from people who come from a different place or have diverse life experiences. And while we are all unique, we are more alike than we are different. Everyone wants and deserves to be happy, peaceful, safe and free.
Taking a bird as a symbol of migration, artist Nicola Donovan will lead textile workshops to create a colourful flock of birds that will sparkle in Oxford’s city centre for the Winter Light Festival and represent the beauty and creativity of the many groups that we welcome into the diverse community of our city
Winter Light Festival 16 – 18 November 2018
Celebratory festival performances of world music and singing will also take place in Bonn Square on Saturday 17th November at 8pm.
This universal flock will then migrate to Cowley Road’s Church of St. Mary & St. John for CRW’s mid-winter community celebration on Sunday 16th December.
