The power of creativity, bringing people together.


Friday 12 to Sunday 14 October


A film and arts festival exploring hate crime and inclusivity as two opposing forces.


Manchester is a strong and diverse community and its resilience has been tested in the past year. We are proud to be part of a city that has responded to violence with love, music and art.


We have more in common than we do differences, and that’s what we want to celebrate.


Organised by Manchester Metropolitan University in partnership with the Students’ Union, the festival is all about exploring how to bring people together. It’ll take place at The Union and will include a independent films, exhibitions, discussion panels, talks, performances and more.


Get involved.
