Applications for Being Human 2017
This year, the festival will return between 17-25 November with a new theme, ‘Lost and Found’. Applicants are invited to respond creatively and in ways that probe the rich intellectual possibilities of the theme.
There are three pathways for getting involved in the festival.
We offer funding under our small grants and hub award pathways, but are also very open to proposals for unfunded activities that do not require a direct financial contribution from Being Human.
Full details on how to get involved, including guidance on the theme, can be found in our downloadable call for applications below.
Please ensure that you read the Call for Applications and Terms and Conditions carefully before applying. Please refer also to the Case Studies below.
The deadline for funded applications is 5pm Monday 10 April
The deadline for unfunded applications is 5pm Thursday 13 June
