15-16 September 2017, Arnolfini, Bristol
The 3rd Community Psychology Festival will be jointly hosted by UWE Bristol’s Social Science Research Group and the British Psychological Society (BPS).
The festival is a friendly and accessible educational alternative to an academic conference with public participation at its heart. It is a celebration of the work of psychologists as well as community organisations, and showcases initiatives that fit with our ethos and themes.
The Festival has an international outlook and has hosted participants from Europe, Israel, the Americas, India and New Zealand. It can be attended by anybody with an interest in psychology or community work.
We welcome contributions from related disciplines and opportunities to collaborate with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Children and young people are particularly welcome as we will have activities that will spark their interest in community engagement.
After London and Manchester, the Festival will be coming to Bristol on September 15 and 16 2017 at the prestigious Arnolfini Centre for Contemporary Arts. The theme of the festival is ‘Falling apart, pulling together: Collaboration in times of division’.
Call for contributions
We welcome contributions in relation to the four thematic strands of the festival:
- Housing, mental health and wellbeing
