Manchester Metropolitan University and The Union Arts Festival 2018

Join Manchester Metropolitan University and The Union for a free weekend that celebrates all that unites us, and aims to challenge the beliefs and attitudes that can lead to discrimination and division.

The Arts Festival is a HEFCE-funded project designed to tackle hate crime on campus – the three-day event takes place on 12-14 October 2018.

A programme of thought provoking and reflective films will be complemented by an exhibition of student artwork to provide a deeper understanding of students’ first-hand experiences and perceptions of the issues. There will also be a range of talks, discussions and workshops involving community groups and other experts/spokespeople.

All are welcome in this safe space to engage in discussion, share experiences and challenge perceptions of our world today, looking at issues such as race, faith, sexual orientation, consent, gender identity, or disability.

Manchester is renowned for combatting violence with positivity and unity. Be part of this diverse and resilient city’s movement to challenge perceptions through awareness and debate.
