You may have heard about the fantastic citizenship festival that will be taking place in and around Glasgow’s Merchant City area on 9th & 10th August 2019. 

The ‘We are One’ Festival is a Citizen Network event supported and sponsored by ENABLE ScotlandIn Control ScotlandRadical VisionsLeap Sports, Unity Trust, VIAS, Partners for Inclusion, Alzheimer ScotlandKey, Neighbourhood Networks, The Wheatley Group, Alliance Scotland, C-Change Scotland and many others.  

With many delegates to the world congress of IASSIDD: already in Glasgow that week, the Festival will provide an international opportunity for serious fun and an exchange of ideas, structured around Citizen Network’s seven keys to citizenship Love, Life, Home, Freedom, Help, Purpose and Money – the very basic things we all need to play our full part within society.  

The Festival will kick-off on the evening of Friday 9th August with a “Stay Up Late” gig taking place in the Barony Bar at the main Festival venue, the Student Union at the University of Strathclyde.  This party atmosphere will provide an effective curtain-raiser for the Festival.  

On Saturday 10th August there will be a full programme of events from morning until early evening.  The Strathclyde Student Union will again provide the main venue, but several additional venues will be in use in the “Merchant City”, including Spoon CaféThe Tron TheatreThe CluthaMono Café Bar. There will be a varied mixture of music, dance, drama, poetry, debate, discussion, and the testing out of new ideas.  There is an inclusive invitation to all who are interested in celebrating equality amid diversity, and entry to the Festival is free of charge

We are expecting a high number of people to attend the event and as a valued partner/colleague, we would like to allocate 20 places to your organisation to join us at the festival.
