Oxford Human Rights Festival

As we begin a new academic year, we are pleased to begin preparations for the 22nd annual Oxford Human Rights Festival (OXHRF) which will be held from the 15 - 22 March 2024, hosted and supported as always by CENDEP. This student-led festival has a rich history of over two decades, offering programs featuring a diverse array of films, exhibitions, talks, performances, and workshops. 

The festival has consistently served as a platform to shed light on the importance of human rights, engaging students and fostering connections with the wider Oxford community. We are looking forward to another year of creativity and community as we address contemporary issues in human rights. If you have an interest in contributing to the festival's planning or wish to share your thoughts, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at oxhrf@brookes.ac.uk. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
