Summer Gatherings

Christina Barr

As summer kicks into high gear, I am reminded of how important it is to connect with friends and family. The humanities are the perfect catalyst for this. Festivals, cultural events,  family celebrations, barbecues, music, art, literature, and all of the social elements that make us human are the glue that binds us together as families and communities. These celebrations are the foundation of the humanities in our everyday life and help ground us in Nevada, and beyond. I hope your July is filled with meaningful humanities moments shared with those you love.


Christina Barr is the executive director of Nevada Humanities. She is also a folklorist and has documented traditional art forms, communities, and cultural issues around North America and abroad, and has shared this work through the production of public programs, festivals, exhibitions, presentations, scholarly and media projects, and community based cultural work.
