Festival of Communities

Staff and Students

Exploring living and learning together in Tower Hamlets, the Festival of Communities is a collaboration between Queen Mary and community organisations, and over 3500 local residents join us over the weekend.  


The Festival of Communities is a great opportunity for Queen Mary staff and students to engage local communities surrounding Queen Mary campuses with your research, teaching and other Queen Mary opportunities and projects.

We are looking for staff and students to take part by running a hands-on activity, workshop, demonstration, exhibit or in other ways we are open to fun and creative ideas!  

You can find out more about the Festival at an information session, discuss your ideas at a 1:1 advice session and attend training to help you design your hands-on activity.  
Funding is also available for QM staff and students to design a new or adapt an existing activity or workshop, of up to £700 per project.
