NEW TEMPLATE

I believe so strongly in Humanities Washington because of the work they do to strengthen us as individuals and as a community of creative, critical thinkers. Through the humanities, we honor that which is most human and profound. It's never been more important than now, when our society seems to be losing its cohesive grip on what makes us a good, rational, and tolerant people.

Think & Drink

Think & Drink brings hosted conversations on provocative topics and new ideas to pubs and tasting rooms around the state.

Hosted Conversation Series Takes the Humanities Out for a Nightcap

Think & DrinkLaunched in 2011, our Think & Drink program brings hosted conversations on provocative topics and new ideas to pubs and tasting rooms around the state. Past events tackled topics from Prohibition to consumerism, and sparked lively conversation about morality, religion, history and politics from Seattle to Spokane.

This year, our Think & Drinks will all center around a common theme: Race, Place and Culture. Our 2014 schedule will include events in Seattle (in Greenwood and Columbia City), Spokane, Tacoma and Yakima. Check back here often for updated event information, then join us for enjoyable evenings of enlightening conversation and tasty beverages.
