Planned for March 2015, the second Gather festival will again bring together staff, students and members of the public to celebrate culture, global citizenship and community.

The sample events are a film screening and panel discussion on the experiences of Rwandan filmmakers, inspirational stories from students who have studied abroad, and a traditional South American celebration.

Gather 2015 sample events

Held in October and November at various locations around the city.

Full event details


The Gather festival is organised by EUSA and the International Office in collaboration with colleagues from across the University.

Gather 2014 featured more than 50 events and was attended by 2,500 staff, students and members of the local community.

Organisers hope these sample events will inspire people to get involved and help shape Gather 2015.

The foundation Gather has established is something we can continue to build on in years to come. With the right support, the opportunities to expand and grow in ways that further enhance student experience will be really exciting.
