Event Details

The 2017 Just Festival will be going  #AgainsttheCurrent hosting performing arts, talks and conversations that present people, movements and ideas that challenge and have challenged the status quo.



Our performance strand will be welcoming local, national and international performers including Ana Bayat's one woman play, "Mimi's Suitcase" Mumbai's Kranti Theatre group presenting Lal Batti Red Light Express and Uganda's Nisha Kaleema presenting a stage adaptation of the Oscar nominated film Freedom.

We will also be reflecting on three historic anniversaries, 500 years since the Protestant Reformation, 100 years since the signing of the Balfour Declaration and 70 years since India declared its independence.

Our varied conversation series includes talks on topics ranging from palliative care through to the role of faith in the ageing process and how to create equal access for performers with disabilities.

We will also be joining all festival participants in celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
