12 Nov-26 Nov 2005. As part of Oxfords 2005 Evolving City programme celebrating its growing cultural diversity, the MultipliCity festival presents a series of exhibitions at the Ovada Gallery and three days of performances at the Pegasus Theatre. At Ovada, a brief personal history accompanies each of Jade Ilkes photos of leaders of the local Afro-Caribbean community, established in Oxford in the 1950s. An interactive board game is just one of the colourful games on display, devised by detainees at the Campsfield Immigration Detention Centre at the Creating Routes workshops led by Hugh Dunford Wood. Dolls made by the 25 participants in the Textiles for Peace project reflect both the skill of the individual creator and their cultural heritage. Finally there is an exhibition of African masks by the Art Room with David Odwar. Entrance to the exhibition is free. Tues, Weds, Fri 10.00-17.00, Thurs 10.00-20.00, Sat 11.00-16.00. The three days of performances at the Pegasus offer everything from hip-hop to classical Indian music and samba plus an ethical fashion show. Admission 4, concessions 2, weekend ticket 10.18-19 Nov 19.00, 20 Nov 15.00.
