Being Human Festival 2023 Illustration Artwork

How do you go about depicting a national festival of the humanities, with such a huge range of activities and subjects explored? This year we decided to revisit our commissioned illustrated for 2022, and add some new elements to it that speak to this year's festival. We collaborated with illustrator Olivia Boutrou to create something that captures the vibrancy, creativity and imagination of our unique festival. We think it's a lot of fun! We'll be using the illustration across our materials to promote this year's festival - so keep an eye out for it.

If you would like to use the illustration on your festival materials and would like to request the artwork, please contact us via email at
