Developing the festival is a collective effort. We have come together, driven by an imagination of how education could be and a desire to work differently (across silos, sectors, nations) to achieve this. There is no one individual or organisation leading or funding this project so we need your support to continue developing and improving the festival.

Please get in touch if you have any feedback or resources that you could offer!
