Contact Ann Mayers

Join us on a journey of discovery as we unearth forgotten stories, celebrate diverse cultures, and foster a deeper understanding of our world. Don’t miss this chance to engage in authentic conversations, bridge gaps, and connect with a community dedicated to shaping a brighter future through the power of the humanities.

Featuring WCCO newscaster Shayla Reaves as emcee! Your evening will take you on a journey through the Humanities Trail as you experience Minnesota in a way never before.

On the Humanities Trail you’ll wind your way through Minnesota through a humanities lens. Along the way you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in unique, humanities-based experiences that represent their vital impact. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres including cultural cuisines, delicious desserts, and a cash bar with a signature drink. Festive casual attire encouraged.

  • Think creatively and help us (re)envision the future of the classroom.
  • Test out the Water Bar to talk, to quench your thirst, to inquire, and to share personal stories and reflections.
  • Visit the cultural marketplace and explore the diversity of cultural wares in Minnesota.
  • Chat with authors David Mura and Sun Yung Shin and learn about the growing cache of public programs around the state.
