It was wonderful to witness over 6000 people from all walks of life from across Northern Devon, coming together on Castle Green to celebrate human diversity and equality. To witness people from all different backgrounds celebrating human spirit, goodwill, and friendship – something that is beyond nation-states, borders, politics and division.
North Devon Sunrise would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who gave support and help to creating this year’s Diversity Festival: our funders, partner agencies, the musicians, dancers, performers and workshop leaders. Most of all, thank you to everyone in the community who celebrated with us in body or spirit – all of you who dare to trust and believe in a world of compassion, acceptance and respect for all human beings. Thank you to you for being part of this year’s Diversity Festival.
