Being Human is the UK’s national festival of the humanities. Each year, we invite humanities researchers and other staff from universities, independent research organisations and cultural organisations to apply to take part in the festival by organising an event, activity or project. There are four ways to take part:
- Hub Award – apply for a larger institutional grant of £2,000–£5,000 to coordinate multiple activities
- Small Award – apply for funding of up to £2,000
- Open Call – organise an activity that does not require funding from us
- Being Human Café – a simple 'off-the-shelf' format
Applications to take part in the 2023 festival will open soon. Please sign up to our mailing list to keep up-to-date with all the latest festival news, including when our call for applications opens.
