The Humanitini Series
DC has always been a city of change, forward-thinking even as we struggle with and celebrate the complexities of our past. Now, our city is evolving faster than ever before and we want to capture the excitement of our vibrant communities where culture is created every day. To educate, inspire and build community, HumanitiesDC developed the Humanitini Series, a monthly get-together at a local restaurant or historic site. The meetings feature guest speakers who present interesting topics relevant to the District’s people and culture.
The Humanitini Series is typically a project of the Humanities Fellowship Program and is awaiting a new Fellow to revive this popular exploration of the contemporary culture of our city.
We hope you will join us when we continue this journey to share your story and answer the question: “What is your DC?” Check our Events Calendar for postings of future events.
