Bangor University is hosting one of only six Being Human 2022 Festival regional Hubs with events taking place from 10 to 19 November in locations across the area. This is the first time the UK’s national Festival of the Humanities has come to North Wales.
The nine ‘Hwb Bangor’ activity sessions are for people of all ages. The aim is show how research in the Arts and Humanities can help us see the world around us differently. What does it mean to be human in North Wales?
Whether you are interested in archaeology or the Avant Garde, in creative writing, history or the performing arts, you will find an activity which will cast new light on our interaction with the environment of North Wales and the other species we share this space with.
Professor Carol Tully of Bangor University’s School of Arts, Culture and Language, who is drawing the activities together said,
“We’re delighted to act as a regional Hub for the Being Human Festival. This long-running festival is the ideal way to showcase some of the fascinating research being undertaken at Bangor University in the arts and humanities. The Festival is an ideal opportunity to show how our work contributes to the debate about the place of humans in the natural world by helping us all to think about the impact we have as humans. We really look forward to welcoming people to our activities.’’
The Hwb Bangor launch event is the ‘Writing with Birds’ afternoon held in conjunction with Llandudno Museum, with a guided walk, writing workshop and creation of a virtual reality map of the Great Orme.
Other events include archaeology workshops, an Avant-Garde ‘happening’, a walk through Llandudno’s Jewish past and a botanical walkshop.
