Safe to Be Me™ Festival is an opportunity for schools and young people aged 10-23 to explore their identities through creative, interactive experiences and digital dance workshops, running 10-31 May 2021.

Safe to Be Me™ supports young people to feel safe and confident in who they are. During the three-week digital festival, young people will address topics such as homophobia, racism, ableism, transphobia, bigotry and family diversity (in line with key Scottish Government targets).

Dance workshops will introduce the core project themes and teach movement and expression. The young people will work creatively with experienced dance practitioners exploring: ethnicity, family makeup, LGBTQ and disability.

Opportunities to hear from inspiring professional dancers from a wide range of backgrounds sharing their experiences in the professional world of dance.

Exciting interactive digital experiences including filmmaking workshops and a filmmaking challenge, empowering young people with the skills to create and express themselves through film.

Dance and literacy workshops exploring poetry and creative expression.
Having already engaged over 1,200 young people in primary schools across Scotland, we're excited to bring Safe to Be Me™ to a digital platform in 2021 and support more young people to explore diversity and inclusion.
