ABOUT STAND STUDENT FESTIVAL

The STAND Student Festival is run by students, for students, to raise awareness about the burning issues shaping the world around us. Previously known as the 8×8 Festival, we have been bringing award-winning photography and film to campuses across Ireland every autumn. This year’s festival will focus on the environment, and its impact on women, international trade, migration, poverty and education across the globe. STAND, along with a team of coordinators on campus, will create and host a number of events relating to this theme during the week-long festival.
