About the festival

The 7th Community Psychology Festival is coming to Dynamic Earth, a state-of-the-art science centre and visitor attraction in Edinburgh.

The Festival was conceived in 2014 by the BPS Community Psychology Section as an accessible and engaging alternative to an academic conference. Since then, it has given a platform to work by community organisations, collectives, artists, academics and students, activists and charities; in short, psychologists and non-psychologists interested in collective responses to the local and global challenges we face. Bring your ideas and passion; immerse in the Festival liminality and communitas; leave recharged to continue the soulful work you’re already doing.

The Festival is organised by UWE Bristol’s School of Social Sciences/Psychological Sciences Research Group (PSRG), University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry (Sea Cry) and local partners.

For the first time, the Festival will span two and a half days, with the last day offering an opportunity for consolidation and networking.

The theme for this year's festival is Seriously; Let's Play!
