The Leeds Festival of Kindness, Compassion & Wellbeing will be a multi-venue festival hosted in different places – neighbourhoods, schools, organisations, businesses – across the city in September 2020. “Kindness and Compassion are the ground in which Wellbeing can flourish.”
The festival will enable schools, faith groups, communities and businesses to self-organize activities in their own spaces as well as attending talks, films, food and arts events at a central venue in the city centre.
Our aim is to showcase and celebrate the great work being done by thousands of individuals, voluntary groups, communities, businesses and the Council in the areas of kindness, compassion and wellbeing to promote community connectedness and wellbeing.
“We want to make Leeds a great place to live, work and play, a city where no one is left behind.”
When we feel we belong, when we feel safe and secure, then we can be our best, most creative, generous, courageous and productive selves. Kindness, compassion and wellbeing build individual and organisational capability and care-ability by creating a supportive environment for a good life that everyone can and should be part of.
“The festival will take place between 5th-13th September 2020.”
The Leeds Kindness Revolution aims to give people an experience of what a city of kindness, compassion and wellbeing could be like, and a glimpse into how things could be different for everyone, including those who are most often excluded.
We invite you to join us in co-creating a festival and a city that is inclusive – in the parks and public spaces, on the buses, on the trains, on the roads, in the city centre and the shopping centres, in schools, in businesses, communities and neighbourhoods.
Contact us if you would like to be involved. We need your help to make Leeds one of the best cities in the UK to live in.
