Humanities 21 is a not-for-profit advocacy organisation committed to promoting the importance of the humanities in work and in personal life. To us, the humanities encompass: Literature, Languages and culture, History, Geography, Philosophy, Politics, Economics, Fine Arts and Music.



Through our events series and advocacy projects, we aim to:

  • Inspire students to study the humanities as the basis of any successful career.

  • Encourage businesses to incorporate lessons from the humanities into staff development programs.

  • Drive policy makers to increase funding to education in the humanities.

  • Excite humanities enthusiasts with fascinating cultural events and ideas.
