What we offer to participant organizations

Mick McIntosh, EWJF participant
"The Edinburgh World Justice Festival is becoming an integral part of the Edinburgh Festivals calendar and through its work educated us all in the issues which affect today' society. I wish it continued success."
Councillor Steve Cardownie, Festivals and Events Champion, The City of Edinburgh Council
All participating organisations and individuals are asked to understand how the Edinburgh World Justice Festival operates and adhere to our values. We are a small team of volunteers, so please bare with us.
The Edinburgh World Justice Festival provides a high-profile platform for world justice events. The high-quality programme of events creates a platform to attract publicity, sponsorship and media coverage. We will undertake to produce and distribute 8,000 progammes around Edinburgh, maintain our website and have an active presence on Facebook and Twitter @edworldjustice.
We aim to accommodate the maximum number of events proposals. However, where we identify two or more events with a similar message, we may ask organisations and individuals to work together to produce one event. Although the EWJF programme and website will be seen by many people, the success and size of each event depends mostly on the efforts of the organisation putting it on. It is normally important to produce promotional material for each event and to publicise it separately as well. We have reserved some suitable venues and event organisers can request use of them on specific dates and allocate them appropriately.
Please note that this year, the EWJF team will not provide stewards, nor organise stalls and each event will be entirely the responsibility of the organisation putting it on.
How can my organisation get involved?
Participation in the Planning Group is open to everyone and organisations are invited to send a representative to our monthly planning meetings, which take place at 7.30 pm on the fourth Monday of each month, in the Quaker Meeting House, however, this may vary so it's best to email us first email@example.com if you're planning on coming along.
In order to cover our costs this year we will be asking participating organisations to identify themselves as supporters of the festival and to contribute a small donation. Supporting organisations will be listed on the programme. See below for suggested donations. We do not wish to exclude any contributors who meet our aims and values on the basis of cost. We would be happy to discuss any potential contributor for whom these cost represent a barrier to their participation
The suggested donnations for organizations taking part in the 2010 Festival are:
- Large national organisation £100
- Small national organisation £50
- Small local organization £25
- Individual contributor No fee
We do not wish to exclude any contributors who meet our aims and values on the basis of cost therefore we would be happy to liaise with any potential contributor for whom these costs represent a barrier to their participation.
Stalls at events
We will hold a list of organisations which may wish to have stalls at EWJF events and will put them in touch with event organisers. Decisions on what stalls are at which events will be taken by event organisers. If you wish to have your request of offer of a stall at events to be circulated to the organisers of events, please send the relevant information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
