The Water/Ways exhibitions will travel to six sites throughout New Jersey.
HUMANITIES TO GO

MUSEUM ON MAIN STREET

Museum on Main Street is part of a Smithsonian outreach program that engages small town audiences to bring revitalized attention to underserved communities. The exhibitions are designed to engage communities and become a catalyst for conversation about life in America.

WATER/WAYS EXHIBITION SITES

In 2019 and 2020, six sites across the state will host exhibitions that explore how water shapes our way of life. The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition, Water/Ways, is designed to start dialogs, build excitement, facilitate connections, and open doors to various community’s history, culture, people, and sense of local pride. Easy-to-install, the exhibit was especially designed for sites with limited access to traveling exhibitions. Potential sites were invited to submit an application. Sites were then selected based on criteria, including geographic location within the state.

WHAT IS YOUR WATER STORY?

Between July 2019 and April 2020, NJCH will host hour-long community conversations in all 21 counties, to capture stories about the different ways water matters to New Jerseyans. Participants will have the opportunity to contribute their water story to a statewide public archive documenting personal connections to water and waterways in New Jersey. All are welcome to share or listen.

HUMANITIES TO GO are our "grab and go" offerings. Based on your organization and desired topics/formats, we offer programs, often subsidized by our federal and corporate funding, so that you can bring high quality humanities programs to your audiences.

At NJCH, we believe that everyone should have access to humanities programming. That's why we created Humanities to Go. We want the humanities to be able to come to you.
