About the event
Join us in supporting the work of Jacari, a charity providing free tutoring and extracurricular activities for migrant, asylum-seeking, and refugee children.
Why is being ‘medieval’ seen as an insult? Why are we fascinated with the idea of 'horrible histories'?
- Modern media has fostered the stereotype that people in the Middle Ages were uniquely backwards, superstitious, violent, dirty, and barbaric. Join us on a tour about Medieval Oxford - highlighting histories of prejudice and bloodshed, while debunking the myths of 'medieval' times. The tour will explore long-lasting connections between the past and the present,and discuss how some medieval issues are relevant to this day.
About Jacari: Jacari is a local charity that provides free 1:1 tuition for local children and young people aged 6-16 from migrant, asylum seeking and refugee backgrounds who speak English as an Additional Language. Our partner schools refer to us newly arrived pupils most in need of additional support. Volunteers offer support through 1:1 tuition to improve the confidence, language skills and aspirations. We also organise extra-curricular activities and trips for our pupils to facilitate community and solidarity. Most recently, we partnered with the Natural History Museum in Oxford to provide our pupils with an accessible and engaging afternoon at the museum. Looking to the future, we hope to be able to develop further opportunities for the local children and young people we support.
