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

New Hampshire Humanities has been connecting people to culture, history, places, ideas and one another for more than four decades. 

No matter what the topic, our goal is to spark open-ended questions of meaning and value. Essential questions. Ones that are important, and timeless, and can’t be answered with a yes, a no, or a fact. How each of us answers essential questions is what makes us who we are. 

New Hampshire Humanities’ most accessible and far-reaching program is our speakers bureau, Humanities to Go. It enables nonprofit organizations and community groups to offer free, high-quality cultural programs to the public at minimal cost to the host. Each year 400 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 one’s understanding of the past and expand one’s 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!
