Endowing Excellence, Innovation and Access through Humanities to Go

An endowment to redesign and relaunch the “Humanities to Go” (HTG) speakers bureau program.

The New Hampshire Humanities Council will transform its popular Humanities to Go speakers bureau into a portable and accessible “center for the public humanities.” Not a bricks-and-mortar project, this “center” will exist in every city and town in New Hampshire. Through Socratic discussions, experiential opportunities and reinvigorated presentations, NH residents will be given the tools and knowledge that enable them to connect local stories, concerns, and traditions with global questions about the human condition. The infrastructure is in place -- the partnerships; the delivery mechanism; and the statewide credibility now enjoyed by Humanities to Go. The need is for occasions for the public not only to listen but to experience and practice the humanities. This new endeavor promises to deliver the intellectual joy and civic virtue of the humanities throughout NH and far into the future.
