Community of Hope
A key part of the mission of the festival is to share the stories of people and organisations doing meaningful work at every level to make human rights a reality, so that people can find inspiration in and connect with their work to take further action.
There are so many amazing people and organisations who are doing the work of making human rights a reality in their own, unique way, in our communities and across the world. Community of Hope shares the incredible stories and work of some of these organisations and we would love our charity members to be part of this.
