Humanitini – Where happy hour meets the humanities!
HumanitiesDC will celebrate the 225th birthday of the Nation’s Capital by carrying out a year-long series of historic and cultural programs, all of which will engage DC residents and visitors in learning about the city’s illustrious history. Our programming will use DC’s history and evolution as a means to comprehend the current issues that DC residents face today. HumanitiesDC specializes in bringing thought provoking civic conversations to diverse audiences across the city. Our programs challenge DC residents to embrace new ideas while encouraging them to remember the city’s vibrant heritage and culture.
HumanitiesDC would like to sincerely thank the individuals, foundations, corporations, and government entities that have contributed to our work with a donation of $1,000 or more this fiscal year.
