SC Humanities is bringing The Way We Worked to South Carolina in 2017 for a year-long tour of six communities: St. GeorgeBlythewoodPickensChesterMcClellanville, and Hartsville. Each host community will present collateral programming from local exhibits to oral histories to movie screenings.

The Way We Worked is a traveling Smithsonian exhibit that explores how work became such a central element in American culture by tracing the many changes that affected the workforce and work environment in the past 150 years. Adapted from an original exhibition designed by the National Archives, The Way We Worked shows how we identify with work – as individuals and as communities.
