Thanks to everyone who joined executive director Ken Egan in September to discuss the year ahead. Community members had lots of great ideas for discussions and presentations, including the impacts of globalization on the MonDak region, energy and agricultural issues, the possibility of a regional Montana history conference, and programming on diverse cultures, literature, and other current events.
Remember, anyone can book a Humanities Montana speaker for their school or group by browsing our catalog of over 100 programs on topics including history, Native American culture, literature, and public affairs. If you’re interested in booking a program from our catalog or creating something new please contact Kim Anderson or Brooke Beighle.
Here’s What’s Coming Up in the Weeks Ahead!
