“At DemFest you will meet people developing fairer and more participatory forms of politics, enjoy a range of exciting democracy-related cultural events and have a chance to think, get-together and talk with others with similar interests or projects. You won't just hear a party line, DemFest is non-partisan and independent.”

It was initiated by non-governmental organisation/charity and encourages people to participate through a special event. DemFest 2016 is local, national and global in orientation and concerned with democracy, politics and representation, anti-discrimination, equality and social justice, economy, education, environment and sustainability, media democratisation, neighbourhood and community, public services and participation.

It will take place 13-14 May 2016.
