MHC’S EDUCATION PROGRAMS
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.
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.
