The Being Human festival will return in 2015. The second national festival of the humanities will run between 12-22 November.
Being Human is the UK’s only national festival dedicated to demonstrating the breadth, diversity and vitality of the humanities. During the inaugural festival in 2014 over 60 universities and cultural organisations organised over 160 free events sharing the best and most challenging thinking in the humanities with audiences across the country. Events included hackathons, wiki-edits, pop-up talks in pubs and cafes, fashion shows, art installations, exhibitions and lectures.
Being Human is led by School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.
