Odyssey Project’s Night of the Living Humanities

Odyssey Project’s Night of the Living Humanities


On Thursday, Oct. 26, Frederick Douglass, Frida Kahlo, and Maya Angelou will mingle with the public at the University Club, 803 State St. The room will overflow with historical figures thanks to Night of the Living Humanities, a pre-Halloween benefit for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Odyssey Project.

This year, proceeds from the Night of the Living Humanities will support Onward Odyssey—our initiative to support the 400+ graduates of our program as they pursue their dreams and college degrees.

Meet Odyssey students, alumni, staff, and board members dressed in costumes inspired by the Odyssey Project curriculum. Look for Abraham Lincoln, Toni Morrison, the Brontë sisters, and others, and chat with the students who bring these characters to life.

Join in the fun and come costumed as a writer, literary character, philosopher, musician, artist, or historical figure. (Optional) Prizes awarded.
