Being Human festival call for participation

9 Mar 2016

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

Now in its third year, the festival will 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. This year's theme is 'Hope & Fear'.

Funding is available to support activities during the Festival. Although it is anticipated that the majority of awards available will be for under £2,000, applications for funding of up to £5,000 may also be considered if of exceptional quality or if institutions are willing to coordinate between 5-10 events as Being Human 'Festival Hubs'.

Being Human will run between 17-25 November. Further information is available on the Being Human website.
