MHC’S EDUCATION PROGRAMS
The MHC is proud to bring public programming to the state of Missouri in recognition of 200 years. The Council, in partnership with Missouri organizations, will be coordinating exhibits and public events, highlighting Missouri’s history. Currently, the Council is working to preserve MO’s founding documents through a statewide, penny drive.
BLACK HISTORY MONTH SERIES
In partnership with Harris-Stowe State University, the Missouri Humanities Council is proud to sponsor a Black History Month Series, “A View of African American History and Culture.” The series will be held every Thursday in the month of February from 6:30 – 8:00pm on the campus of Harris-Stowe: 3026 Laclede Ave, St. Louis, MO 63103.
The Missouri Humanities Council is partnering with various organizations to bring public programming that connects community and nature. These programs vary from lectures, to bike rides, to walking tours. Currently programs are held in the Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri regions, but we are striving to bring these programs throughout the state.
JUST Listening is a 26 minute documentary short that focuses on art as a reaction to tragedy and as a form of activism. The documentary was produced by Speak Up Productions and includes images of art, spoken word, interviews with artists, and a historical narrative on Ferguson. The opening show was held at UMSL on Feb. 19, 2016.
The “Show Me Missouri” Speakers’ Bureau provides expert historians, storytellers, researchers and authors to share the special stories about Missouri’s culture, history, art and people. The program is offered to both non- and for-profit organizations, such as civic organizations, museums, historical societies, libraries and groups.
An important facet of the Missouri Humanities Council’s mission is to bring the humanities to every corner of Missouri. One important way we do this is by working with our partner scholars to build engaging exhibits that can easily travel the state. In doing so, we take the study of the humanities directly to your local community.
