An online festival of ideas like no other, featuring a month of dozens of unique sessions and different formats, including “In-conversation” discussions, Q&As, book launches, policy seminars, exclusive interviews, interactive workshops, film watchalongs, “Lefty lunchtime” streams, political education forums and more.


Whilst all online events will stream for free, as a volunteer organisation we are selling an initial batch of tickets to register for the entire festival in order to meet the digital infrastructure costs of such an ambitious project.

Additionally, we hope Arise Festival will also be back in-person next year, so any further donations will also help to make that happen.

Thanks to all the pages listed on social media, who are kindly helping to promote the event.
