“As we look at the challenges we’re facing we need to rethink about the stories we’re telling ourselves. We need to think of, not just the stories that exist, but the stories that haven’t been told yet. And that’s where ‘Utopia’ comes in. Those stories that haven’t been told yet.”

David Castillo in conversation with Jay Moran

The Buffalo Humanities Festival is a collaborative public humanities project, organized by Canisius College, Daemen College, Niagara University, SUNY Buffalo State, and the University at Buffalo Humanities Institute.
