Just Festival events aim to challenge perceptionscelebrate differences and promote respectful dialogue. The conversations, talks, exhibitions and performances which constitute Just’s annual programme are designed to engage with topical local, national and international questions of social justice, equality and identity, including prejudice against race, ethnicity, class and economic status. Just explores these issues by creating safe spaces for dialogue and exchange between affected groups and individuals, invited experts, practitioners, community based organisations, socially conscious performing arts groups and the general public. This multi-dimensional, multi-stakeholder approach encourages creative engagement with important societal questions from a variety of angles and perspectives with the aim of reducing religious, political and social intolerance.
