Radical Ideas. Unexpected Connections. Stronger Community.

 

Connect with new ideas and people - join us for Culture Shift, a monthly series hosted by Alaska Humanities Forum and held at Anchorage Brewing Company. 

At each event, a pair of speakers will give short talks on two unrelated topics that they are passionate about and that challenge cultural norms or assumptions. Then, the audience takes part in a fun, interactive, and thought-provoking Q&A to find connections between the two.

When:

Last Wednesday / month, 6:00 to 8:00PM

Come early to grab a drink, meet new people, and chat with friends.

The program will begin promptly at 6:00PM.

Where:
Anchorage Brewing Company
148 W 91st Ave (off King St, South of Dimond Blvd)

Many thanks to Anchorage Brewing Company for hosting our series!

Dying for Men to Have a Revolution

In light of the ongoing developments regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and the latest guidance provided by the CDC and the Municipality of Anchorage, we will be postponing and/or modifying upcoming gatherings to be accessible via remote engagement. We are committed to continuing to provide opportunities for community engagement and conversation, and doing so in a way that supports public health.  As a result, we have cancelled Culture Shift for March and April; we hope to resume in May.
