NEW TEMPLATE

What are the humanities? It is all of us, eating, drinking, working, living, dying to tell our stories to each other. At our best we are trying to get one another to laugh or cry over our place on the planet. We can learn by seeing each other and sharing that moment. Just like KUOW and NPR, the work of Humanities Washington ensures that people remain engaged in their communities.
