The mission of the Humanities Council is to enrich the quality of life, foster intellectual stimulation, and promote cross-cultural understanding and appreciation of local history in all neighborhoods of the District through humanities programs and grants. The Humanities Council believes that in-depth consideration of the issues that affect us as individuals in a society can make a positive impact on our lives, and believes each citizen can participate in our vision to "transform lives through the power of the humanities."
The Humanities Council has a commitment to serving the local population with in-depth programs examining the cultural life of all of the District's neighborhoods and communities. The Council works with community partners and social leaders, encouraging then to embrace the D.C. cultural renaissance and collaborate with us to develop intercultural, bridge-building activities that raise cultural consciousness. Programs designed and implemented by the Council include three educational television programs aired on DC Public Access Television; Soul of the City, a three-day urban leadership seminar; and the Humanities Resource Center. Since its founding, the Council has also funded more than 800 projects. The grant program plays a critical role in the District?s cultural life by offering both funding and in-depth program development, which is particularly important for small or under-advantaged organizations without experienced staff or administration to support them. Last year, the Council distributed more than $100,000 in grants to agencies in Washington.
