Through the Lens Programme

Oxford House has commissioned this project as part of our two-year heritage programme Through the Lens.  This event forms part of a project inspired by our ongoing research into Oxford House’s historic and ongoing relationship with local Somali communities and their contribution to life at Oxford House. Inspired by our ‘Somali Cafe’ in the 1990s and the extraordinary creativity of this community – this launch event is a showcase of the next generation of young artist and creatives.

This project has been made possible with funding by the National Heritage Lottery Fund.
