Hope in Hard Times: Washington During the Great Depression Traveling Exhibit 4/12/2014 12:00:00 AM
Hope in Hard Times: Washington During the Great Depression Traveling Exhibit

The Humanities Washington’s traveling exhibit, Hope in Hard Times: Washington During the Great Depression, curated by the Washington State Historical Society, explores the adversity and triumph of everyday Americans during the 1930s, comparing the struggles of the decade with those faced today. Personal experiences illuminate the broader themes of the exhibition, enlightening audiences about how people lived during these difficult times.

This special exhibition invites visitors to use the stories they see within the exhibit to start conversations of their own about family histories and the impact that this historical event had on their own lives or those of others. The theme of hope woven throughout the narrative reminds viewers that they, too, can find their own opportunities for creating change and learn from the past to impact their present.
