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.

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.

Our next Think & Drink events will center around a common theme: Race, Place and Culture with events planned for Seattle, Tacoma, Yakima and Spokane. Check back here for updated event information, then join us for enjoyable evenings of enlightening conversation and tasty beverages.
