Being Human festival launch with David Olusoga

10 November, 2020, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This is an online event.

The Being Human team warmly invite you to the first ever virtual festival launch, showcasing snippets from this year’s ‘New Worlds’-themed nationwide celebration of the humanities (12–22 November). The launch will be previewing a programme that explores everything from science-fiction futures, to immersive explorations of the past, to the role of the humanities in the present.

We will also be joined by festival patron Professor David Olusoga OBE for a thought-provoking talk in conversation with festival director Professor Sarah Churchwell, on decolonisation and ‘new worlds’. Come along for a preview of this year’s festival, which tackles some of the most important issues of our time, and bring along a drink to toast the success of humanities public engagement in 2020.
