Humanitini – Where happy hour meets the humanities!
Humanitini is the name of the drink and the name of the program! These exciting happy hour conversations bring panels of academics, culture curators, musicians, experts, or whomever the occasion might call for into bars and restaurants for lively conversation and intellectual debate. Our signature “think and drink” program brings Washingtonians together to discuss issues that are timely, engaging, entertaining, and usually all of the above!
No two Humanitinis follow the exact same format, but generally: the panelists speak for 3-5 minutes each to help frame the discussion, and then the moderator will turn things over to the audience. Within the first 20 minutes or so, a crackling dialogue drives the program. Sometimes funny, sometimes provocative, always entertaining; these are conversations that you won’t hear anywhere else in DC!
HumanitiesDC will celebrate the 225th birthday of the Nation’s Capital by carrying out a year-long series of historic and cultural programs, all of which will engage DC residents and visitors in learning about the city’s illustrious history. Our programming will use DC’s history and evolution as a means to comprehend the current issues that DC residents face today. HumanitiesDC specializes in bringing thought provoking civic conversations to diverse audiences across the city. Our programs challenge DC residents to embrace new ideas while encouraging them to remember the city’s vibrant heritage and culture.
