What is Florida Talks?

Florida Talks is one of Florida Humanities’ longest-running public programs. It offers nonprofit organizations across the state an accessible way to host engaging speakers who present Florida’s history, heritage, and culture through historical contemporary lenses.

More details about our redesigned Speaker’s directory and host application are coming in May 2022. To learn more, sign up for an informational webinar on June 17 at 10:00 am.
