• Is empathy an impediment to success? Find out on Thursday 23 November


Humanities 21 is a not-for-profit advocacy organisation that exists to promote the benefits of being educated in the arts. A humanities education enables creative problem-solving, nuanced thinking, and the ability to consider questions to which there are no clear answers. Humanities 21 exists to ensure these skills and the type of education that cultivates them are not overlooked in our society.


Our events series and advocacy projects examine ideas, encourage respectful debate, and place our local concerns and priorities within a global context. We hope to encourage people within our society to pursue an education in the arts, whether through tertiary degrees, professional development courses, personal reading, or partaking in public events.
