What does Nevada Humanites mean to me?

A cooking workshop that offers a fresh point of entry into understanding a new cultural perspective...
A book club conversation about a Nevada author...
A movie that compels us to imagine a place different from where we now stand...
A Facebook discussion about ethics in the news...
A round table discussion about sportsmanship and civility...

All these experiences are examples of how the humanities infuse our daily lives. They are the stories, ideas, and beliefs that help us engage with - and make sense of - our world.

Nevada Humanities works to make these experiences readily available to all Nevadans. We help you explore your local culture, learn new things, start a conversation, and connect with others in your community.
