2017 Just Festival edition

2017 edition of Just Festival will be held under the theme #AgainstTheCurrent. We will host conversations, talks and performing arts events that present people, movements and ideas that challenge(d) the status quo. 

We will reflect on the three historic events and their anniversaries: 500 years since the Protestant Reformation, 100 years since the Balfour Declaration and 70 years since India declared its independence. We will be joining all Festival participants in celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  

The 17th edition of Just Festival will take place at St John's Church (Princes Street/Lothian Road) and the Quaker Meeting House (Victoria Terrace) between 4th and 27th August 2017.

We are looking for proposals from individuals, groups, organisations and companies that wish to collaborate on a rich programme that informs and inspires.
