The Edinburgh People’s Festival is determined to confront discrimination, ignorance and prejudice wherever it arises. We are proud of our commitment to inclusion and accessibility. Our festival seeks to bring greater understanding and appreciation of the arts as well as reflect and celebrate the social and increasingly multicultural backgrounds of the people who live here.
