Half of Washington State children do not enter kindergarten ready to learn, and Latino children, in particular, face a long list of barriers to success in school. Through programs such as Humanities Washington's Motheread Family Literacy Program, disadvantaged families from across the state gain the opportunity to come together around the collective power of story, building literacy skills, pride in their culture, and a greater understanding of other cultures as a result.

Traveling Exhibits

Partnerships with the Smithsonian Institution, the Washington State Historical Society and other organizations allow us to bring an exciting array of traveling exhibits to small museums and other venues across the state.

Exhibits Program Brings Museum-Quality Exhibits to Underserved Areas

Since 2004, Humanities Washington has partnered with organizations including the Smithsonian Institution and the Washington State Historical Society (WSHS) to bring high-quality museum exhibitions to all corners of the state. Our Traveling Exhibits program also helps build the capacity of small museums and other humanities venues.

Our current exhibit, Hope in Hard Times: Washington During the Great Depression, was curated by WSHS and will tour eight communities during 2013-14.

Previous exhibits have included Journey Stories, Key Ingredients: America by Food, New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music, Between Fences and Yesterday’s Tomorrows: Past Visions of the American Future.
