Our free masterclass sessions are aimed primarily at Being Human festival organisers, as well as those interested in public engagement in the humanities more broadly. Throughout the year there will be chances for everyone to discuss the opportunities and challenges of conducting public engagement with research and how we can continue to deliver entertaining experiences in ways that will appeal to our intended audiences.
