Our Humanifesto

We love the humanities.
They keep us interesting and make us creative thinkers.
And now, more than ever, the world needs creative, inspired thinking.
We believe literature, history and philosophy are the right stuff.

The humanities have done a lot for us and it’s time we did something for them.
We’re here to put the humanities back on the agenda and show what can happen when we learn from those who came before us.

We believe that a myopic focus on commerce is unhealthy.
We’re here to bring together interesting people, with interesting thoughts.
We’re here to stand up for the humanities and remind the world of what’s possible when we seek wisdom in unusual places.
We’re for great thinkers, great minds and great people.
We’re for the humanities.
