The Cultural Experts Guide and Speakers Bureau is an effort by the Houston Institute for Culture to promote interest and awareness of cultural and social issues which impact southeast Texas. Houston Institute for Culture does not represent experts and speakers listed here as an agent. We have included writers, researchers, journalists, artists, community advocates and organizers, who we are certain will offer informed, meaningful and interesting presentations of their material. Media and organizers must make arrangements directly with those listed. Because of limited availability or research schedules, some may ask that inquiries be first directed to the Cultural Experts Guide and Speakers Bureau coordinator. You may contact others directly if their contact information is provided.
