What does it mean to be masculine today? How do we face the loss of Arctic sea ice? And what can poetry tell us about refugees?
Join Think Human Festival to explore some of the most important issues of our time. Discuss, share and question the challenges facing the world today - through music, comedy, debate, film and more.
Think Human events are held in locations across Oxford and from 1–14 February 2020. A special week of events just for schools is available too.
*Admission to Think Human events is on a first come, first served basis for all. To ensure you can take up your place, please arrive a little bit before your event’s scheduled start time. We reserve the right to cancel and change events. Please check our website and social media for updates.
Is the male mind and body now a site of cultural conflict?
Find the humour in hardship and the glee in gloom!
The Arctic is changing fast – and it’s up for grabs
Get your A level and college students ready to experience university-level learning and life on campus firsthand, in this free experience for select schools*. Students will participate in seminars that explore the key issues facing youth today - like how we respond to Donald Trump, whether AI can be unethical, or what consent law should look like in 2020.
Everything is free to select schools, including transportation, food and snacks and of course, exciting learning and discussion!
*We encourage you to register interest for your school, if your students meet any one or more of the following criteria: students live in an area with low levels of progression to university, or live in an area of socioeconomic disadvantage, are care leavers, care givers, have refugee or asylum seeker status or are BAME.
