Just Festival

Just Festival is Edinburgh’s social justice and human rights festival. A part of Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival our events aim to challenge perceptions, celebrate differences and encourage dialogue on the key issues of our time.

Our 2020 festival is based on the theme of ‘transformations’, drawing together a programme of digital events accessible online via Zoom.  We will do all we can to support any access requirements on an individual basis. To discuss or arrange this please contact the Festival Director.
