The Unusual Suspects Festival is back in London!

Unlikely connections for social change
14-16 June, 2017

SIX and Collaborate are bringing The Unusual Suspects Festival back to London this year, with the support of Lankelley Chase and Nesta. 

More than ever, we need to find a way to bring people together who would not usually meet each other. Only through collaborating and understanding will we achieve positive social change.

There is not a better time for the Unusual Suspects festival to return to London!

The Unusual Suspects Festival is a unique set of collaborative events, hosted by different organisations from a variety of sectors, across different venues in a city. It brings together people who would not usually meet, despite sharing an enthusiasm for creating real social change through collaboration. The design of the Unusual Suspects Festival facilitates serendipity between organisations and people, who would otherwise remain unconnected. It not only inspires, but also catalyses breakthrough thinking and action. 

Collaborate with us!
