Join Nevada Humanities and the Nevada Arts Council for a pair of programs celebrating National Arts & Humanities Month. Two entirely unrelated topics find common ground during a tag team lecture. Each speaker gets 10 minutes to teach us something new about unrelated topics. Audience members do the deep thinking to find commonalities between the two, and ask questions to join everything together. Ideas start to mix and anything can happen! Appetizers are on us. Events are free and open to all.
