Each year we invite humanities researchers and other staff from universities, independent research organisations, and cultural organisations including museums, libraries, heritage organisations and archives to apply to take part in the festival by organising an event, activity or project.
As a team we are here to help organisers and researchers develop their festival activities. Please get in touch with our team if you have any questions about participating in the festival, applying for funding or putting together a great public engagement event - we will do our best to help!
There are a few ways to take part in the festival:
- Hub Award: apply for a larger institutional grant of £2,000 – £5,000 to coordinate multiple activities as a festival Hub.
- Small Award: apply for funding of up to £2,000 to enable activities.
- Open Call: organise an activity that does not require funding from us.
- Being Human Café: a simple, off-the-shelf activity that does not require funding from us.
The deadline to take part in this year's festival has now passed. To find out when applications open to take part in Being Human festival 2022 please sign up to our mailing list.
