The Unusual Suspects Festival: Glasgow 2015

Location: Glasgow, Scotland
Event Date: 7 — 9 October 2015

After the success of the first Festival in London in September 2014, we brought the Festival to Glasgow. 

The Unusual Suspects Festival brings together the ‘unusual suspects’ – individuals and organisations from youth clubs to ‘do tanks’ to multinational corporations- who are making real social change happen by working together in new and different ways. The Festival was curated by SIX and supported by Nesta, the Big Lottery Fund and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. 

This Festival featured 20 events over the 3 days with 35 different contributing organisations – all exploring how we can work in different ways to address some of the most difficult challenges we face in society today.
