About We Are One - Citizenfest

We Are One is about citizenship. It has it’s roots in Citizen Network – an international community working for a world where diversity is cherished and equality respected.

In August 2019 that community is coming together in Glasgow to stage a festival asserting and celebrating diversity and equality in equal measure.

It all kicks-off on the evening of Friday 9th August with a party and club night (and early morning) inspired by the Stay-Up Late campaign for grown-up freedoms.

Then, on Saturday 10th August, a full-day programme of events, big and small, in a variety of city centre venues: celebrating our rights - ethnic, political, minority, and common human rights - through music, seminars, food, drama, talks, art and much more.

For more information about taking part see the We Are One Facebook or Twitter page.
