Difference Festival - University of Westminster 25 February-1 March

Difference Festival is a week-long celebration honouring the history and roots of our institution whilst showcasing the work of staff, students, alumni and friends of the University of Westminster.
This year the Difference Festival focuses on the term 'radical', taking in ideas from our history and ethos to today's social, political and cultural concerns.
The University of Westminster has always been different. In 1838 The Polytechnic Institution in Regent Street was established to 'delight as well as to instruct' and was described as 'an intellectual treat'. Our predecessors created a place where the public could explore new ideas, discover new inventions, acquire new knowledge and learn new skills. We strive to continue those ambitions and to make a difference, embodying the link between theory and practice and changing the world for good.
Come and be delighted and instructed by our researchers and their guests, treat your intellect with lunchtime and evening talks, walks, workshops, film screenings and discussions.

Within the dDifference Festival I have organised the event
