In celebration of our research and successes join us at the Difference Festival 2021, a programme of exciting events showcasing the University of Westminster’s diverse contributions to our global community. We’ve changed city designs, impacted conversations about race and place, questioned preconceived biases and even challenged what a University should be. Join us in discussions about this work.
The Difference Festival is a week-long celebration showcasing the work of staff, students, alumni and friends of the University of Westminster, whilst honouring the history and roots of our institution. In 2021, the Difference Festival highlights some of our work on prejudice and discrimination, underpinning the University of Westminster’s clear support for Black Lives Matter and stance against racism in all its forms.
Where traditionally the University’s College of Liberal Arts & Sciences would open up our doors and welcome friends and neighbours onto our beautiful campus, this year we will be holding Difference Festival events online between the 22nd and the 26th February. This gives wider opportunities for more people than ever to join us, so we are looking forward to seeing you.
