These programs are part of Connecticut at Work, an initiative created by Connecticut Humanities that explores the past, present and future of work life in Connecticut.  The initiative features the Smithsonian Institution’s traveling exhibition “The Way We Worked” which will visit the Nathan Hale Homestead through September 14. 

Connecticut at Work travels across the state through December 2014. The program features the Smithsonian Institution’s The Way We Worked Exhibition, with stops in seven communities: New Haven, Torrington, Hartford, Waterbury, Coventry, Stamford and Groton. Surrounding communities are adding local focus with community history exhibits, book and film discussions, author talks, performances and more.  Connecticut at Work is an initiative of Connecticut Humanities, a non-profit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. In the Coventry region, Connecticut at Work is a partnership with Connecticut Landmarks. The Connecticut tour of The Way We Worked is made possible by Connecticut Humanities and Historic New England.
