We believe that great ideas and actions for social change emerges from unlikely connections.

The Unusual Suspects Festival is all about conversations that connect across our differences. More than ever, we need conversations that nurture empathy and understanding, not division and hatred. The Festival provides a space for unlikely suspects to come together to discuss, reflect, exchange ideas and challenge each other. We also collect stories of the unusual suspects through a visual storytelling project and weave together the personal narratives and stories told by the unusual suspects beyond and outside of the Festival.

The Unusual Suspects Festival is a great way to refresh and reconnect your city with the people and organisations who are playing a key role in shaping them and provide a shared meaning.
