Uncomfortable Oxford is Social Enterprise which raises awareness about the ‘uncomfortable’ legacies of inequality and imperialism in the city as well as the politics of memory built in its environment. It runs walking tours, blog posts, public lectures, and outreach programs.
As part of the Refreshers Week, we will be running the General Uncomfortable Tour. It covers an overview of the main topics (imperialism, slavery, memorialization, gender and inequality, class) by focusing on statues, plaques, names (and re-naming), as well as general topics on accessibility and discrimination.
Meeting point at Carfax Tower, We will confirm the details of your guide closer to the time, but they will be waiting at the meeting points and carrying a large tote bag with our Uncomfortable Oxford logo on it.
Accessibility: Crosses cobble stones and uneven pavements, plus walking up to two miles
