Cultivating conversations and encouraging civic engagement
Bringing neighbors outside to explore our sense of place
Challenging ourselves to re-examine our beliefs
New Hampshire Humanities provides wide-ranging and thought-provoking, humanities-based programs that connect people across New Hampshire to culture, history, places, ideas, and each other. We connect people and ideas through free public events, literacy programs, and grantmaking.
For a small state, New Hampshire has a remarkable history full of interesting people, new inventions, daring adventures, and astounding beauty. Learn more about Granite State Stories, a special partnership between NHH and the NH Historical Society HERE.

This summer the tutors co-facilitated four six-week Connections book discussion groups using the program’s new “book grant” option. For Nashua Adult Learning Center, this option allowed us to serve 35 students who otherwise wouldn’t have had access to summer English instruction.
