Exeter Respect is the city's annual celebration of diversity where we use the performing and creative arts to engage the wider community in saying no to racism and all forms of prejudice. The Respect ethos is a simple one: racism and prejudice often spring from fear, and fear is often based on ignorance, so let's overcome ignorance by getting to know one another and sharing not shunning our cultures. One of the best ways to get to know someone is to enjoy yourself with them, hence our celebratory event and adoption of the old Commission for Racial Equality slogan: All Different, All Equal!
Exeter Pound will have a stall at the Festival both Saturday 6 and Sunday 7: come along and have a chat about Exeter's upcoming local currency, what it will mean for the city and what it can do for us all.
