Headington Campus


How can we create a socially and environmentally sustainable world? In this discussion and workshop, comedian and author David Bramwell will share past attempts to build utopian societies - from Copenhagen’s freetown Christiana to Italy’s spiritual commune of Damanhur.

Participants will explore how we can bring utopian thinking into our everyday lives. Join us for a hands-on workshop with Bernadette Hehenberger, where you’ll make your own sustainable leather amulet, drawing on specialist craft skills.
