2016 in Stories

Kansans know that stories teach us, unite us, move us, and make us and that’s why telling Kansas stories is so much a part of what KHC does. Last year, KHC supported 788 humanities events in 127 communities and worked with 197 organizations. Just picture those 788 times when Kansans gathered to share, listen, and engage with the history and ideas that shape us. These gatherings happened from the east to the west, in small towns and large, with crowds of all sizes. Here are a few highlights from 2016:

A new year is right around the corner. Here is a sneak preview of what’s to come for Kansas:

  • New discussions, exhibits, and presentations on the future of water in our state.
  • A new Poet Laureate of Kansas™ ready to travel to you.
  • A new addition to our Big Culture Boost series for cultural nonprofits.

Please make a gift to keep the new stories going in the new years.
