New Hampshire Humanities offers the only grants program in our state dedicated to making the humanities accessible to all. The humanities are the ideas and knowledge about human history and culturethat help people understand life today. Nonprofit applicants work with a trained expert to plan all kinds of programs, from lectures to book or film discussions to walking tours to community conversations.
Did you know that skills learned through the humanities are the same qualities that make top-notch employees—the ability to think critically and creatively, innovate, analyze data, solve complex problems, write well, and communicate effectively?
The 14th annual One Book One Valley, a community read program for the Mount Washington Valley and surrounding towns, will be held in 2019, and will once again be supported by a Community Project grant from New Hampshire Humanities. This year's book is Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family by Amy Ellis Nutt. Nutt is the Health, Science & Environment reporter for The Washington Post.
Six nonprofit organizations were recently awarded Community Project Grants for fall and winter events in locations around the state. Information about these events will be publicized in our monthly e-news and online event calendar as details become available. Our grants are supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
