Humanities to Go brings the thrill of discovery and the power of ideas to all corners of the state.

New Hampshire Humanities’ most accessible and far-reaching program is our speakers bureau, Humanities to Go. Through Humanities to Go, nonprofit organizations and community groups can offer free, high-quality cultural programs to the public at minimal cost to the host. Each year 500 Humanities to Go programs get 12,500-plus NH residents together in more than 165 local community settings to learn together on topics that challenge our understanding of the past and expand our perspectives. 

Humanities to Go presenters include faculty members at our state’s colleges and universities as well as spot-on performers of living history, engaging teachers, and dynamic community-based scholars. Each has translated in-depth knowledge about a topic into a single, compelling presentation with built-in time for questions and discussion. Our presenters are an important part of the intellectual capital of our state. You are, too! 

Our catalog features more than 160 programs available to community groups throughout New Hampshire. At this time we are accepting applications for programs scheduled through December 2019.
