Speakers Bureau

Humanities Kansas Speakers Bureau presentations and discussions are available free to Kansas nonprofits, as funding allows. These are intended for adult, out-of-school audiences.

Sharing the diversity of stories in settings across the state sheds light on where we've come from and starts conversations about who we are. The insights and ideas we generate as people in conversation are lighting the road ahead — for each of us and for the state we all proudly call home.

How to Bring a Humanities Kansas Speaker to Your Event

1. Review the Movement of Ideas catalog and select a speaker and topic.

2. Contact the speaker and confirm time, date, location, and equipment needs. It is up to the host organization to provide the equipment necessary for the presentation or to confirm with the speaker that they can bring their own.

3. Apply for funding to bring this speaker to your community. Find out how. (Please note: Completed applications, including the DUNS number, must be submitted six weeks before the event date to be considered for funding.) Presentations are intended for out-of-school adult audiences and must be free and open to the public. Humanities Kansas is not able to fund applications that do not meet these requirements.

4. Publicize your event. Download press releases and photos.  Download a Humanities Kansas logo poster.

5. Tell us how it went. After the event, download and fill out a Speakers Bureau Evaulation and Cost Share Form and email them to Abigail Kaup: abigail@humanitieskansas.org
