THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS FESTIVAL – Unlikely connections for social change

07/10/2015 @ 08:00 - 09/10/2015 @ 17:00

A three-day festival of ideas, solutions and debate exploring what happens when social innovation meets collaboration and how together we can meet some of society’s most pressing challenges.

Organised by Social Innovation Exchange, the Unusual Suspects Festival this year moves to Glasgow! Join the conversation!

The Festival grew out of a frustration of attending events and constantly seeing the same people and having the same conversations. We wanted to hear from the ‘unusual suspects’ because we think that a conversation with someone with a different perspective helps us to imagine new possibilities and develop different outcomes. And so SIX, Collaborate and the Caloustse Gulbenkian Foundation hosted the Festival for the first time in London in 2014 to enable a different conversation to happen. The distributed model of working with different partners ensured that we heard from the unusual suspects and encouraged new collaborations to happen.
