Six@Six Lecture Series
Six@Six is a community lecture series sponsored by Northern Kentucky University???s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. Think of this as your chance to go to college, minus the tuition, the morning classes and the pressure of grades.
Six@Six enjoyed an exciting and successful inaugural season in the fall of 2010 and spring of 2011. We started with Abraham Lincoln and ended with Rodgers and Hammerstein; along the way we learned about quilts, international journalism, caves and Shakers. One attendee described a lecture as "fantastic, entertaining, educational"--and that was the general consensus across the board. Speaking about one of our lecturers, another viewer said that the "depth of knowledge and passion of speaker for subject [were] infectious!"
This second season continued to show just how much our community thirsts for knowledge--and Six@Six will continue to bring the experts to the community to impart their wisdom.
SixatSix is hosted by three of our region's finest arts and culture institutions: Behringer- Crawford Museum, The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center and The Mercantile Library. In Fall 2012, for the first time, one of the lectures will be held in NKU's new, state-of-the-art Digitorium, which includes a barn-sized media matrix wall and and a three-dimensional projection system. The Behringer-Crawford Muesum and The Mercantile Library will host two lectures each and The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center will host one lecture, for a total of six talks, beginning this fall and stretching into next spring . The six lectures will each start at 6 p.m. and cost $6 (buy a season pass for $30; students are free.)
In the fall of 2012, join us on a journey of discovery as we explore a whole new set of topics that are sure to broaden your mind and widen your eyes to the possibilities of the world around us.
