Few states in the nation are as culturally, economically, politically, and geographically diverse as Washington. Those differences often generate what appears to be an insurmountable divide. Yet, since 1973, Humanities Washington has shown in profound and poignant ways our commonality as a people. Regardless of where we live, Asotin or Neah Bay, Ilwaco or Metaline Falls, we share the same dreams for a better world for ourselves and our descendants. The programs of Humanities Washington remind us of those common dreams.

We are currently accepting applications for our new roster of speakers, which will start on January 1, 2015. Please contact Zaki Abdelhamid at zaki@humanities.org or at 206-682-1770 x102 for more information.

Feeding Inquiring Minds through Education and Conversation

New SB imageSpeakers Bureau is one of Humanities Washington’s oldest and most popular programs. A roster of 32 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.
