What We Do
The Florida Humanities Council’s work seeks to engage Floridians with humanities content that both stirs curiosity and affects people’s everyday lives.
In partnership with libraries, museums, and non-profit organizations across Florida, we sponsor and facilitate public programming that brings Floridians together and encourages local communities to participate directly with rich humanities themed content.
Florida Humanities Council grants respond to the needs of local communities and address humanities topics of statewide interest. Grant-funded programs are designed to be collaborative, encourage active participation from the public, and explore humanities topics in unique ways.
Our work on special initiatives aims to enhance public awareness of issues that are important to Floridians. Initiatives offer communities unique opportunities to engage in the work of the Council and change on a regular basis.
Our award winning magazine, “Forum,” as well as our downloadable walking tour app, “Florida Stories,” provide platforms to delve into the rich history of Florida, while our “Humanities Now” blog features unique humanities themed content related to our public programs.
