Being Human 2018
Swansea University’s Cultural Institute has been chosen as one of six hubs for Being Human 2018, the UK’s only national festival of the humanities.
Now in its fifth year, Being Human is led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy. This partnership draws together the three major bodies dedicated to supporting and promoting humanities research in the UK and internationally.
With a theme of Origins and Endings, this year's celebration of the humanities is taking place nationally between 15 - 24 November 2018, with a series of free events taking place across Swansea.
Under a hub theme of Once Upon a Time, the End, audiences can participate in creative activities (including 'literary windows'), performances, discussions and an exhibition that will take you from fairy tales to Shakespeare, Martin Luther King to the NHS at 70.
These events will be delivered by the Cultural Institute at Swansea University in collaboration with a range of partners from the Swansea Bay area.
Dr Elaine Canning, the Cultural Institute's Head of Cultural Engagement and Development, said: “We are delighted to be hosting a festival hub as part of Being Human 2018 and wish to thank the festival organisers for giving us this exciting opportunity to bring our research into the community once more."
