Just Festival Edinburgh 5-28 August 2016
Just Festival events aim to challenge perceptions,celebrate differences and promote respectful dialogue. The conversations, talks, exhibitions and performances which constitute Just’s annual programme are designed to engage with topical local, national and international questions of social justice, equality and identity, including prejudice against race, ethnicity, class and economic status. Just explores these issues by creating safe spaces for dialogue and exchange between affected groups and individuals, invited experts, practitioners, community based organisations, socially conscious performing arts groups and the general public. This multi-dimensional, multi-stakeholder approach encourages creative engagement with important societal questions from a variety of angles and perspectives with the aim of reducing religious, political and social intolerance.
In addition to the annual August festival, we plan to programme regular monthly events, including 'PhD in an Hour', 'Death Cafes', 'Science, Faith and Society' conversations and 'Conscious Film Screenings' to be hosted in partnership with Scotland-based charities, institutions and community representatives. Just Festivals will strengthen its presence and visibility in Scotland and increase its impact on individuals and communities participating in and contributing to its activities through collaborative projects with arts, charitable, and community organisations.
