The 2021 programme has once again been moved to an online platform and the call out for participants has been by Derry City and Strabane District Council in partnership with Derry Trades Union Council.

It offers the chance for community and cultural organisations and individual artists to stage a range of events and activities exploring how injustice and inequality has been challenged over the years.
