My city, your city: Postcards from home is a way to connect using hand-written messages in contrast with more common digital messaging.

Oxford has seven Twin Cities, with academic, business and social links throughout the globe. This captivating project of cultural connections uses postcards from people in Oxford’s Twin Cities to share the essence of these vibrant destinations.

Part of IF Oxford: with 100 events across the city of Oxford and beyond, there are thousands of ways for you to connect with science, ideas, places and people.

Sponsored by law firm Mills & Reeve and supported by Oxford City Council
