Engage Festival 2020: Engagement, innovation and change

The Engage Festival is an online extravaganza that will take place from Monday 30th November – Friday 4th of December 2020. Bringing together all of those keen to support the role of public engagement in reimagining our world, the programme is the ultimate in tailorable experiences, with delegates being able to develop their own programme that fits their interests and their availability.

Everyone’s experience of our current context is different, and we have therefore timetabled our content to be suitable for a range of availabilities and engagement preferences. We are expecting people to curate their own unique engagement experience, picking and choosing from the options on offer – and enabling a conference that is tailored to you.

In a context where the very fabric of society as we know it is changing; where predictions about the future are contested and uncertain; and where engagement and collaboration is needed to lay the foundations for all our futures, this conference will provide a place to explore, be challenged, and to dream. 


We welcome poets, artists, thinkers, practitioners, funders, policy makers, dreamers, pragmatists, communities, publics, patients, to come and join us at the festival – to share perspectives, and to reflect on the future of engagement in a Covid-19 world.
