JustFest Presents: The Volunteering and Social Justice Festival, Tuesday 18 October

On Tuesday 18 October 2016, JustFest Presents: The Volunteering and Social Justice Festival, a free flagship event of the University’s Ethical Grand Challenges programme that brings together two existing events; the Volunteering Fair and JustFest.

In 2015 the Volunteering Fair welcomed over 2,000 students. By joining up with JustFest, the event aims to inspire students to take action in their communities, the UK and beyond, by exploring aspects of social justice in a creative environment.

The festival will take place at Academy 1 and the surrounding areas. Inside Academy 1 there will be an exhibition space giving students the chance to meet charities and not-for-profit organisations, to network and learn about volunteering opportunities. Outside, the Main Stage will feature musical performances, spoken word artists and soapbox style talks. There will also be a tent curated by the Students Union (SU) and food stalls.

Doors open at 11:30 and close at 16:00. In the evening the SU will be holding a themed event looking at social justice and opportunities to get involved.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the Ethical Grand Challenges Team or the Student Volunteering team.
