Drama on Multidimensional Poverty

OPHI will present a short play exploring multidimensional poverty at the Ashmolean Museum’s next Live Friday event on 15 May.

‘Poverty on the table’, produced and performed by Oxford-based theatre company Justice in Motion, will start at 8.15pm and 9.45pm in the Ashmolean’s lecture theatre and run for approximately 15 minutes.

Live Friday: Social Animals has been organised in collaboration with the University of Oxford’s Social Sciences Division, with many departments and research centres taking part. The Ashmolean’s galleries will be open after hours for an evening of live performances, creative workshops and lively talks showcasing research from across the division.

Other activities hosted by centres in the Oxford Department of International Development include:

  • A performance-experience centred around migration, exclusion and discrimination from the International Migration Institute
  • Interactive activities exploring dietary diversity around the world from Young Lives
  • An exhibition of photographs by and about refugees courtesy of the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency

Entrance to Live Friday is free of charge and the evening runs from 7pm – 10.30pm. Find out more about the evening and watch a trailer for the event on the Ashmolean’s Facebook page.
