Partnership Programs

The Florida Humanities Council’s programming seeks to engage Floridians with humanities content that both stirs curiosity and affects people’s everyday lives. From our community project grants and engaging speaker series, to our exhibition partnership with the Smithsonian Institution and reading and discussion programs, we aim to bring Floridians together.

Reading and Discussion Programs

Our six-week reading and discussion programs provide a space for participants to engage in respectful and authentic dialogue about an important cultural topic. With the discussions guided by a qualified facilitator, this program currently is centered on the role “race” plays in our society, as well as the myriad experiences of those that have served in the military.
