There will also be the opportunity to get involved in Fellow-led practical innovation sessions, as well as co-creative workshops, exploring our Design for Life interventions.

We want the event to be welcoming to all. The day will be relaxed, lettiing you come and go from sessions as you please. If you're attending in-person, we will be making our prayer room available a well as creating designated quiet spaces for those who may want to make use of them during the festival.

With the day fast approaching, we're asking you to post your questions and thoughts in our new Fellows Festival space on our Circle community platform.

We’ll be sharing the latest news in the same area online and it's where you'll be able to get involved on the day.
