As human beings, we look for common experiences and want to share our experiences—that’s what writing is all about. You tell someone a story and they try to relate that to their own lives—there's a communal experience. We're trying to puzzle out the meaning of the world around us—that’s what the humanities is all about.

Feeding Inquiring Minds through Education and Conversation

updated SBSpeakers Bureau is one of Humanities Washington’s oldest and most popular programs. A roster of 31 cultural experts and scholars provides low-cost, high-quality public presentations across the state, encouraging audiences to think, learn and engage in conversation.

These diverse and engaging speakers cover a variety of topics, including popular culture, photography, architecture, literature, food, film and history. Speakers are carefully selected based on their expertise and ability to offer content and insight that inspires discussion with audiences of all ages and from different backgrounds.

Speakers Bureau presenters deliver hundreds of talks in every corner of the state. To reach as many Washingtonians as possible, we partner with a wide range of organizations, including libraries, schools, museums and historical societies, retirement homes, community centers and civic organizations.

Best of all – these presentations are free to the public! Please visit our calendar to find a speaker event in your area.

We encourage all nonprofit organizations to apply to host a speaker. We do ask host organizations to cover speaker travel costs and to publicize the event, but Humanities Washington pays the speaker fees.

For more information on how to book a speaker, please contact Zaki Abdelhamid at (206) 682-1770 x102 or by email.
