What are the humanities and why do we need them now more than ever? And how is HumanitiesDC leveraging the power of the humanities to transform lives and communities?


Full house for a DCCHP Symposium at the Room and Board furniture store.

The mission of HumanitiesDC 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.

HumanitiesDC 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.”
