The Festival is a friendly and accessible educational alternative to an academic conference with public participation at its heart. It is a celebration of the work of psychologists as well as community organisations, and showcases initiatives that fit with our ethos and themes.
Feedback from past Festivals has extolled the atmosphere of solidarity and ‘coming together’, which we value above any single individual contribution.
Past contributions have included talks by prominent European scholars; ‘walk and talk’ sessions; dancing workshops; research papers; an ‘Ideas Wall’; activist groups; Theatre of the Oppressed; prospective reflection through ‘letters from the future’; and photography workshops.
The Festival has an international outlook and has hosted participants from Europe, Israel, the Americas, India and New Zealand. It can be attended by anybody with an interest in psychology or community work.
