Humanities Washington is the state's flagship non-profit for promoting and providing programs based in the humanities. We play a critical role in addressing an immediate and growing crisis concerning community identity and understanding, respect for other perspectives, and the ability of communities to work together to shape a better future.

Our work in cultural education-ranging from our speakers bureau to traveling Smithsonian exhibits to family literacy instruction-promotes awareness of the history of local communities and its residents, provides opportunities for people to gather and learn more about their unique past and shared present, and nurtures relationships that enable us to move forward towards a more prosperous future.

Humanities Washington acts as a catalyst and facilitator, supporting and partnering with a wide network of communities, organizations, and individuals across the state by:

Creating, inspiring, supporting, and enhancing high-quality humanities-related programming.

Providing organizational and technical support to community organizations across the state.

Promoting public awareness of the power of the humanities work and the value it provides individuals, organizations, and communities statewide.
