What is Humanitini?
Humanitini is an exciting happy hour event where Washington's movers, shakers, and creators come together to think and drink. It is a place for you to engage with your peers, meet your neighbors, and speak with experts about what makes our city a unique place to live and play.
What is your DC?
DC has always been a city of change, forward-thinking even as we struggle with and celebrate the complexities of our past. Now, our city is evolving faster than ever before, and we want to capture the excitement of our vibrant communities where culture is created every day. Join us for the 2017 Humanitini series as we explore our city and ask the question: "What is your DC?"
This Month: John Eaton Elementary School & its Relationship with Cleveland Park
Innovative Eaton Elementary School teachers recently designed lesson plans to draw their students out of the school grounds. They used community history to connect the school and its students with its surrounding neighborhood. The experience gave young people the opportunity to explore local history in a hands-on way. For a brief period of time, the neighborhood was their classroom, and its residents were their teachers.
