Being Human festival returns!

We are delighted to announce that the Being Human festival will be returning in 2015. The second national festival of the humanities will be running between 12—22 November. Save the dates!

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… even the occasional lecture.

In 2015 we aim to make the festival a bigger, better, and more comprehensive celebration of the humanities. Join us on Twitter at @BeingHumanFest and follow #BeingHuman15 for updates on how to get involved, and keep both eyes peeled for our 2015 call for participation. Coming soon!
