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 2019

CitizenFest Glasgow - We Are One took place in Glasgow in August 2019. 

John and Frances of Radical Visions brought together a wide range of organisations from across Scotland to build upon the 7 Keys to Citizenship, producing a programme covering 3 days of workshops, music, debate, art, films, stalls and food.

No Labels No Walls took place in Helsinki in September 2019. 

Markus of Kukunori, and The Strindberg Laboratory brought together diverse organisations and individuals to form a movement believing that what we have in common is more powerful than what separates us.
