“When academic researchers share their work with wider communities, everyone involved – researchers as well as public participants – benefits.” – 2018 event organiser
Help us make it happen
We believe that new discoveries in the humanities – from art history to classics, literature to philosophy, languages to history – should be something that anybody can get involved in, whatever their background. Hundreds of events and activities are organised as part of the Being Human festival every year, nearly all are free to attend and none of them costs more than £5.
Our ambition is to ensure that the benefits of humanities research are felt at grassroots across the UK and beyond – especially in places where public engagement with higher education is low. To do this, we simply need more funding. If you believe in what we do, and want to support our mission to ensure that the humanities are for everyone, please donate directly to the festival via the link below.
Donations are processed by the University of London, where the festival is based, and all money goes directly to support the Being Human festival.
