Being Human Festival
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 and more.
This short film revisits 2014 Being Human Festival events giving insights into innovative research taking place across the humanities and the UK.
Researchers and the public will again be invited to take part in the Being Human phenomenon in 2015. Find out more on the Being Human website.
