  • Think Human

    We are delighted to announce that following a fantastic response to our call for event proposals the Think Human Team are developing an exciting programme of free events for the 2020 Festival taking place 1-14 February. Do revisit these pages in the coming months for updates on the programme of events and booking information.

    In May 2018 over 2,000 people joined us for the first Think Human Festival in 2018. Across 6 days and 35 events. Sessions ranged from free workshops, debates, activities and performances, covering topics as diverse and divisive as Brexit, criminality in the internet age, protest songs, and the history of magic.

    We invite you to join us again in 2020 to test your assumptions, expand your perspectives, explore human identities, and let Think Human empower and inspire you!

  • Photography Competition

    Relationships, challenges and changing society

    We are delighted to be offering the Think Human Photography Competition again in November 2019. In 2018 this competition led up to the launch of the Oxford Brookes’ Think Human Festival. It highlighted the value of the humanities and social sciences in our rapidly changing modern world, and we received an impressive array of entries. More details will follow on how you can enter this year.
