Being Human is the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. Coordinated by the School of Advanced Study, University of London in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the British Academy, in 2014 the festival featured 162 events organised by over 100 universities and cultural organisations across the country. In 2015, it is proud to return between 12-22 November for 10 days of big questions, big debates and engaging activities for all ages.
The core aim of the Being Human festival is to make research in the humanities accessible and engaging to non-academic audiences, and to demonstrate the role of the humanities in the cultural, intellectual, political and social life of the UK. Small grants are available to help fund festival activities. The deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 17th April, 2015.
