Staff and Students

Activities at the Festival of Communities Stepney Green Park Fun DayThe 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 across all subjects to propose ideas of activities they would like to run.

The activities at the Festival are designed for local families to learn something new or try something different, and to provide an opportunity for everyone involved to meet and interact with people they haven’t met before. These varied activities could be hands-on, demonstrations, stalls, performances, an exhibition or another way –we’re open to new, fun, creative ideas! 


If you would like to discuss your ideas before submitting, we are holding a number of drop-in sessions over the coming months.
You can also email with any questions or queries.


Funding of up to £500 per project is available to create new or adapt existing engagement activities.
The Festival funding opportunity is open to Queen Mary staff and students, and the deadline for funding applications is 1 April 2019 at 10am.
