Film / discussion | Black History Month, Identity, Music

Musicians from Oxford’s Inner Peace Records collective have created some original hip hop tracks inspired by the Pitt Rivers Museum’s collection of African instruments. Working alongside a team of musicians from Africa, inside the museum over an intensive four day period, the hip hop artists gathered sounds and melodies to create new music and lyrics. The process was recorded for a mini documentary (rating TBC). Watch the short film and meet some of the artists involved.

COVID security

With a sizable number of staff, performers, volunteers, and indeed the public, not yet fully vaccinated, we encourage our visitors to continue wearing masks and to practice social distancing so that we can all feel safe and protected. We see this as an important step to protecting everyone involved in creating culture in Oxford, and kindly request that visitors remain considerate during this time. In the event of a change in COVID status, the Festival reserves the right to convert in-person events to digital if required and will inform all ticket holders of any changes.
