Public and cultural engagement
You'll have opportunities to gain hands-on practical experience in creating humanities programming for the public. Chief among these is the national (and now international) Being Human festival, held in November each year, which brings together universities, museums, galleries, libraries, and other partners to stage stimulating and engaging activities that make humanities research accessible and relevant, strengthen community identity, and increase understanding of the relevance of the humanities to local and international issues.
We take pride in helping you benefit from public engagement activities, which can help you gain new perspectives and insights on their work. You can read more about our public engagement activities here.
