Support the Tucson Humanities Festival

To coincide with National Arts & Humanities Month, the University of Arizona College of Humanities presents the Tucson Humanities Festival every October to engage the Tucson public with topics of humanistic inquiry. Every year, we present emerging and established thought leaders, authors and scholars to address today’s most complex human challenges.

The 2019 Tucson Humanities Festival: NEXT offers a series of 10 thought-provoking events, featuring UA faculty and special guests including author and poet Sandra Cisneros. Previous festivals have explored themes including: Secrets, Resistance & Revolution, Refuge, Found in Translation, and Trailblazers & Hellraisers. Presentations take place in the UA Poetry Center and other venues around our community to provide public access and meaningful backdrops to conversations.

With your support, the conversation continues.
