Plan Your Event

The primary goal of Anthropology Day is to share the wonders of anthropology with the world around us. For that reason, we strongly encourage individuals and groups to plan events that engage the community outside of their own department or club. The Anthropology Day resources page includes some great information to help organize those kinds of events. We have programming tips for campus groups, museums, workplaces, and K-12 teachers as well as a newly updated event toolkit to help participants plan events that share anthropology with a wider audience.
