Work By the Numbers

The numbers are in and it’s clear that KHC’s The Way We Worked statewide initiative was a success! Here’s a glimpse of the impact of The Way We Worked in Kansas:

  • 6 communities hosted the Smithsonian exhibition, The Way We Worked
  • 22 communities explored the theme of work locally as partner sites
  • Over 450 Kansans volunteered across the state
  • 57,475 visitors viewed the exhibitions and attended programs

All exhibition hosts saw attendance increase by at least 41%, with big increases in school field trips and visits from first-time museum goers. The Way We Worked drew out-of-towners too, with visitors traveling regionally and nationally (people from 42 states signed in).
