About Humanities Washington
Our society is increasingly divided, detached, and distracted. We are deeply polarized, less engaged in civic life, and less willing to listen to others’ opinions without becoming at best dismissive and at worst angry and offended. At the same time, we reach for our digital devices during even a few seconds of inactivity, eliminating time for reflection and engagement with ourselves, each other, and the world around us. That’s where Humanities Washington comes in.
Humanities Washington and its partners create spaces for people to come together to explore and consider what it means to be human, and to reflect on our shared past, present, and future.
We hold events and programs led by cultural experts, scholars, and storytellers who discuss everything from Washington State history to philosophy providing context for current social issues. We also support and partner with a wide network of communities, organizations, and individuals across the state. For further information, please visit www.humanities.org.
