Humanities Washington serves as a magnet, a master chef, and a bully pulpit for the Humanities in our state. We all benefit from their ability to bring new voices and new perspectives to the forefront. The rich and vibrant culture we are weaving each day in our state owes a great deal to their encouragement and support of scholars, writers, teachers, and artists throughout Washington.
