Humanities Truck

humanities truck

Organizers: Dan Kerr

American University wants to mobilize the humanities. The Humanities Truck working group, seeks to establish an experimental mobile platform for collecting, preserving, and inspiring dialog around the humanities will document experiences, start conversations, and share the stories of diverse and underserved communities in the Washington, DC metropolitan region.  It will function as a mobile workshop, recording studio, and exhibit space that can be driven across the region to work with specific micro-communities across the city in the spaces they already gather.
