We work with sustainable venues who are aligned to our purpose, benefiting social progress, local communities or the environment.
London - our 2020 launch event will be at The Boiler House, a venue putting action and innovation towards social change at the forefront. Workshops will run at x+why workspace, a flexible workspace with purpose.
Oxford - Tap Social Movement grew out of a passion for good beer and social justice, a craft brewery which provides training courses for people serving prison sentences, offering courses in brewing and business start-up, and providing one-on-one support in securing permanent employment to assist in effective rehabilitation.
Bristol - Cube Cinema, a non-profit cooperative staffed by volunteers. Since opening in 1998 the venue has hosted artistic and cultural events including films and music performances, as well as providing a focal point for the local artistic community.
'Fantastic festival with a very high bar for quality films, all with an environmental or social message. Was a joy to be a part of.'
