Being Human Festival announces call for applications

18 Feb 2015

Being Human, the UK's only national festival of the humanities, led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Humanities Research Council and the British Academy is now inviting applications from across the country for public event funding.

Now in its second year, the festival will once again bring together leading academics, artists, writers, filmmakers and others for eleven days of events in November to celebrate the richness and diversity of the humanities and their place in the national culture of the UK.

Grants are now available to fund creative programming which engages the public with leading humanities research, including debates, performances, virtual activities and exhibitions. All UK universities and independent research organisations are invited to apply for these small grants to participate in the festival by holding their own public events and activities to showcase humanities research.

Being Human will run from 12 to 22 November 2015. Further information is available on the Being Human website.
