Throughout 3 days, leading national and international figures will reflect on concerns facing humans in today’s world, and on the changes that will take place in the near future, by means of concerts, round tables, and meetings that will promote dialogue among science, technology, and humanities.

Look back to know where we are going

Nothing is written in advance. The passage of humans on earth is built every day and the future is never alien to the past, although along the way there are changes and fractures that mark significantly differentiated stages. In the same way, the present is projected in the fabulations that we create about the future. We are a historical animal that has completed many stages on earth.

Cultural Capital of the Mediterranean

The city of Dénia preserves the legacy of its ancient history, the cradle of people and cultures for more than 2,000 years. As the capital of the Marina Alta region and within its status as a Creative City by UNESCO, Dénia continues to have an important cultural activity today, but the city longs the cultural luster of its taifa of a thousand years ago and aspires to recover its place as a beacon of culture and thought in the Mediterranean.

From October 26 to 28, Dénia Festival de les Humanitats will once again turn the city of Dénia into the epicenter of critical thinking, reflection and the Humanities in the Mediterranean.
