Our passion for the humanities can only be matched by our love for our beautiful state, and we are continuing our mission of elevating the role of humanities in every county of our fine state through grants, programs and conversations.
Our new focus on community conversations and youth focused programs will expand our reach and focus throughout Michigan. A new cycle of Great Michigan Read begins this fall with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha's "What The Eyes Don't See," addressing water quality and access, environmental injustice, speaking the truth, immigration and intersection of the humanities and science. Poetry Out Loud 2019-20 will inspire another generation of students and develop a love of poetry that they will carry on with them beyond their high school years. Humanities Grants reach all corners of the state, funding projects for museums, universities, historical and community groups that they would otherwise not be able to support with their current funding.
You make our work possible. Please help us continue to provide the tools and funding to help Michigan’s people better understand one another, learn from history and shape the future.
