CitizenFest 2020

CitizenFest 2020 was a great success - building on the first CitizenFest held in Glasgow in 2019, we joined with our fantastic allies in Los Angeles and Helsinki to create 3 CitizenFests and saw:

  • 130 events - including arts, music, talks, dance, theatre
  • 3,000+ people attended one or more event
  • At least 51,000 people reached via social media
  • Sharing media between different people in different places
  • Locally hosted and online platforms

The Strindberg Laboratory have captured the spirit and energy of the weeks' festivities in their film:

Massive thanks to everyone who joined in, we're looking forward to next year's CitizenFest already!

CitizenFest is a celebration of inclusive citizenship, and the possibilities of a world where everyone matters – without exception. 

CitizenFest is an opportunity to get together, to learn from each other, creating and sharing a world community through shared values.

Why don't you run a CitizenFest in your community?
