07.09.2015 event

The ‘Unusual Suspects Festival’ will, this year, be held in Glasgow from 7th-9th October 2015.

The event will be bringing together a range of participants from Scotland and around the World. This diverse event will also feature a range of different formats such as talks, walks, debates, music and discussions. The combination of social innovation professionals and 'unusual suspects' promises to enliven conversations and engender new ways of thinking. The festival looks to bring together ideas about the way in which collaboration and social innovation can work together in order address societal challenges.
