Cleveland Humanities Festival

The first annual Cleveland Humanities Festival will explore the impact of war on society and culture.

The Cleveland Humanities Festival is a collaborative event celebrating the great cultural institutions of the city of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio dedicated to humanistic inquiry. The Festival engages the public in addressing some of society’s most challenging issues and pressing concerns. Coordinated by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities of Case Western Reserve University, the Festival is partnering with our region’s major museums, educational institutions, and arts organizations. The first Festival will explore the impact of war on society and culture. Through a series of coordinated events participants in the CHF will consider, from a humanistic perspective, our capacity for brutality and the possibility of transcending it through the power of art.

Presented with the generous support of:
