Presented by Joan Nothern

Woven together over the years, humanities opportunities allowed one rural Kansas town to stretch beyond its own place and time. Struggling Glasco (pop. 498) was told that their town had no future, but residents pushed back by organizing events and hosting cultural opportunities. This lecture will lead you through their journey from Chautauqua to exhibits and special projects, lectures and book discussions, that strengthened the community and enabled small but mighty Glasco to become a facilitating agent beyond its own city limits.
