‘Oxford is My Home’ a magazine made in a day @ Open House
Apr 27 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

A free event for all ages and abilities to come together and create a community-made magazine on that it’s like to make, have and even lose a home in Oxford.

As a public talking shop, we love to find new ways for people to connect and share their experience of housing in Oxford. So we’re running this fun challenge to build a magazine together, entirely from scratch…in just ONE DAY.

Sound exciting? Want to be involved?

Well, all you need to do is pop along to Open House on Saturday 27th April.

Drop in for an hour or stay for the whole day. There’ll be lots of fun things to do:

Write poems, stories and articles
Design artwork
Share your opinions
Learn new skills, from printing to poetry
Drink tea and make new friends

All materials and refreshments will be provided. We just need YOU to make it happen!

All contributors will get a FREE COPY of the finished magazine, and be listed as a creator.

Everyone is welcome & no experience is needed.
