‘Small awards’ pathway

‘Small awards’ pathway

About this pathway

Every year, the Being Human festival partners (the School of Advanced Study, University of London, the AHRC and the British Academy) make available funding to support festival activities under the ‘Small awards’ pathway.

‘Small awards’ are designed to support creative and exciting festival activities that wouldn’t run without financial support from the festival. Awards can be used to fund either a single event or a small series of activities that offer a very close fit with our ethos and with the festival theme.

As well as being impactful in their local area, ‘Small award’ funded activities add significant value to the festival programme as a whole: as eye-catching ‘best practice’ activities. Activities are typically built around a strong ‘hook’, and are ambitious and creative whilst still well thought-through and achievable. Take a look at our ‘case studies’ section for examples.
