XR affinity groups are small groups of people supporting each other and working to achieve the XR goals. By organising as many small groups pursuing a shared vision, we avoid getting too bogged-down in slow decision-making processes.
Form an affinity group with your friends, or with other Oxford Rebels you meet.
Existing Affinity Groups
Find groups in your area on the Affinity Groups map.
The Working Groups are groups within XR Oxford that organise certain areas of our activity. Anyone can join a working group – you don’t need to be NVDA trained.
To join, find out more, or suggest an idea, contact the working group coordinator directly. You can be involved as much or as little as you want, and no experience is required. Everyone’s ideas are valued.
