Background Image Erika Nelson presents topic at Speakers Bureau event

Speakers Bureau

Humanities Kansas Speakers Bureau presentations and discussions are available free to Kansas nonprofits, as funding allows. 

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.
