HISTORY ON TAP

Come raise a glass with Clark County Historical Museum and the Kiggins Theatre as we explore the history of the Pacific Northwest!

Now entering its third season, History on Tap looks at how the past influences our present and informs the future. It’s built on the premise that history didn’t end on some dusty date on the calendar but is a dynamic story where every person is an active participant.

Tickets are $10. Every ticket purchased for the History on Tap stream includes a 32-oz Crowler from Barlow’s Brewery!

First up on March 11th – ADAPTATION: THE OPEN SECRET OF HUMANITY’S ORIGINS, GLOBAL DIVERSITY, AND DISTANT FUTURE

Spend the evening with anthropology professor, author, and Pacific Spaceflight co-founder, Dr. Cameron Smith, PhD, as he explores evolution, indigenous perspectives, and how it informs our distant future.

Special thanks to our sponsors Zzeplin, the Vancouver Downtown Association, Mickler & Associates, Lymantria Consulting, and Barlow’s Brewery. Program support provided by Wager Audio.

Then on April 18th – HISTORY OF TRANSGENDER PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON AND THE AMERICAN WEST

Join us for an evening with Dr. Peter Boag, PhD. professor of history at Washington State University, member of the Clark County Historical Museum, and author of Redressing America’s Frontier Past.  From Seattle’s Harry Allen (born Nell Pickerell) to Idaho’s Joseph Monahan (born Johanna Monahan) and beyond, Peter shares their stories, their society’s understanding of their gender identities, their relevance to our contemporary times, and how historians uncover and make sense of the challenging, problematic, at times heart-breaking, and at times triumphal stories of past peoples like them and like ourselves.

Special thanks to our sponsors Zzeplin, the Vancouver Downtown Association, Mickler & Associates, SW WA Cougar History Alumn, and Barlow’s Brewery. Program support provided by Wager Audio.
