Spark your curiosity at these free online events!

HN’s Speakers Bureau has been the mainstay of HN’s programming for 40 years and provides communities across the state with engaging speakers who spark learning and discussion in schools, libraries, senior centers and other venues. Historians, scholars and other experts offer more than 250 different humanities programs. Any non-profit organization may apply to host a Speakers Bureau program for a very low cost.

To showcase this statewide resource, HN will offer a series of virtual programs in 2023 including several during Humanities Week in October. Each event will be held over the noon hour (central) and are offered free of cost.
