Soul City Arts in partnership with mac birmingham is running a symposium which looks at the explosion of festival culture in the UK and how faith related perspectives impact.

It is on Wednesday 9 November from 12:30pm to 5pm.

International and UK based speakers will offer inspiration, information and key networking opportunities for faith, community and mainstream programmers, and those responsible for marketing, fundraising and partnership development.

Learn how you might grow your own festival or local cultural celebration or work more closely with the event organisers to help expand its impact and reach.

Asad Jafri Artistic Director, Inner City Muslim Action Network and Producer of   'Takin' it to the Streets' Festival (Chicago);

Paul Northup Programme Manager, Greenbelt Festivals;
