About the Faculty of Arts at The University of Melbourne

The University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Arts brings together a diverse and dedicated community of scholars. As Australia’s leading Arts faculty, they are committed to humanities and social sciences research and teaching that can help tackle global challenges in new ways.

Since 2017, The University of Melbourne's Faculty of Arts have been involved in Being Human, and they have led international Hub programmes since 2018, with events to date including food styling, Turkish marbling and Persian calligraphy workshops, guided meditations, behind the scenes tours and the much-loved annual Melbourne Classics Quiz!

"What’s not to love about the concept of Being Human? Research impact and its translation in Australia is different from that in the UK so it’s exciting to bring over the unique reciprocity embedded in the ‘two-way street’ model of the festival." - Emma Sekuless, The University of Melbourne
