Programs & Models


The Forum's programs provide opportunities for individual and professional growth and reflection, cross-cultural immersions, and meaningful conversation.  While each experience is intentionally tailored to a specific topic, purpose, and audience, across our programs, participants:

  • Develop the skills to connect

  • Build cultural competency

  • Expand their networks

  • Access tools & resources

“Participation in Alaska Humanities Forum programs is changing how I interact in the world. Selection into the Alaska Salmon Fellows program has permanently connected me to diverse individuals from across the state whom I would never have met and challenged my thinking about the equitability and sustainability of our salmon-people system. I now view every conversation as an opportunity to gain new perspectives and insights, and I have gained the tools to engage meaningfully with people who hold dramatically different viewpoints.”

“I have certainly gained a much deeper understanding of the people and communities of Anchorage and more and more parts of the state of Alaska. I have gained so much insight into myself and my potential as a leader, and a thirst for more knowledge and understanding through these wonderful interactions. I keep returning to the Humanities Forum programs because they have all been such valuable, and really cool, experiences.”
