Inquiring Mind, a Program of Humanities Washington

John Salicco is an alumnus of the 2007 - 2009 Inquiring Mind Program. 

 Inquiring Mind is a public humanities program that offers speakers on a wide range of humanities topics including history, literature, philosophy, and public policy. Some presentations are first-person historical characterizations, others are presented in lecture format, still others are traditional story telling presentations.

A number of my programs were developed specifically for Inquiring Mind and for several years were completely subsidized for community groups by Humanities Washington. 

With a leaner State budget, I no longer receive any financial support from Inquiring Mind, though I do continue to offer significant discounts to non-profit community groups. 


Please contact me for details.
