The Big Tent Values
- Non-Partisan: Big Tent is strictly non-partisan; united by a desire to see progress for the UK through the broad engagement of multiple actors.
- Dynamic: Passionate, energetic, creative and optimistic; leading change in new and exciting ways
- Participative: Open to new ideas and encouraging of new voices and wide engagement; striving to provide a platform for all civilised viewpoints, a home for excluded views, diverse identities and 50:50 gender representation.
- Collaborative: Convening and connecting original thinkers and innovators, seeking to catalyse progressive partnerships.
- Pioneering: Harnessing the restless spirit of innovation and enterprise, challenging establishment politics, and democratising the process of policy making.
We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us create the Big Tent Ideas Festival. Over the next year we are planning to run multiple festivals across the country, and we need you to get involved, whether that’s helping to create the festival with our team, or joining us on the day.
