Being Human: a festival of the humanities | 12–22 Nov 2015

Being Human Festival

In 2014, Being Human featured 162 events organised by over 100 universities and cultural organisations across the country.

Being Human is proud to return between 12-22 November 2015. Get ready 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
  • engage non-academic audiences
  • demonstrate the role humanities play in the cultural, intellectual, political and social life of the UK

The festival is led by the School of Advanced Study, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the British Academy, and the Wellcome Trust.
