We placed visual artists in 12 schools across the city, working with dancers from Pegasus Theatre to create movement and costumes to shimmy down the length of the road!

Working with the theme of ‘Wheels of Change’ as inspiration, all the children visited exhibitions at one of the University Museums (Pitt Rivers, The Ashmolean, History of Science Museum, Oxford Museum and Botanical Gardens) or the 100 Years of Mini exhibition at Mini Plant Oxford to gather ideas.

The procession saw costumes and structures that included a sarcophagus and little Egyptians, vintage cars, balloons

This project was made possible with funding from the Van Houten Trust and Mini Plant.
