Diversity and The City II

Leicester is celebrated for its diversity and multiculturalism. But, what does this really mean?

What are the demographics like in Leicester? How do they compare with national figures? What do the demographics say about poverty, (in)equality, access (or barriers) to services, (un)employment, opportunities

(or the lack of opportunities), the criminal justice system and other systems? Do key institutions’ employment patterns reflect the city’s demographics? If not, why is this?

At "Diversity and The City II", a range of speakers will present a variety of takes on these and related question, and take part in a discussion and Q&A session with those present. Building on from the success of last year's event, "Diversity and The City II" is taking place as part of the 2018 Leicester Human Rights Arts and Film Festival.

The speakers, participants, precise venue, and times will be announced closer to the event.

The Leicester Human Rights Arts and Film Festival runs from 4 December through to 10 December every year.

The Festival aims to explore human rights issues through a series of events that are free and open to all and which include panel events, film, music and art. The Festival aims to give people a platform through which to engage with human rights issues at home and abroad.

The Festival also aims to draw attention to International Human Rights Day which is celebrated annually, around the world, on December 10.

In addition to being the 5th anniversary of the Leicester Human Rights Arts and Film Festival, 2018 is also:
- the 70th anniversary of both the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and the National Health Service (NHS), and
- the 50th anniversary of the assassinations of both Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy.
