50th Celebration & Knit Democracy Together Exhibit Unveiling

New Hampshire Humanities is turning 50!

Please help us celebrate five decades of connecting people and ideas across the Granite State, with 50th birthday cake and refreshments, a film, and the unveiling of a statewide, collaborative democracy project, a model of the NH State House.

Join us for the unveiling of the collaborative sculpture created during our Knit Democracy Together series. Made of the knitted and crocheted pieces stitched at six knitting circles around the state, the sculpture is a visual representation of individuals’ participation in lawmaking and the democratic process. 

Beginning at 1:00 pm, artist and former election lawyer Eve Jacobs-Carnahan will speak about the project, followed by brief remarks from Michael Haley Goldman, executive director. Afterwards attendees can enjoy light refreshments including a birthday cake to mark the special occasion while perusing this special pop-up exhibit on voting rights provided by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, entitled Who Can Vote: A Brief History of Voting Rights in the United States.

At approximately 2:30 pm, we will show a documentary film on the 26th amendment which lowered the voting age from 21 to 18 in 1971, created by current New Hampshire House representative Mel Myler.

Registration is required due to limited capacity. RSVP by email
