South Carolina Humanities
The humanities are how we understand ourselves and our world and how we communicate that understanding to others. South Carolina Humanities is one of 54 state and jurisdictional humanities councils that receives funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities. SC Humanities funds, promotes, counsels, and coordinates all manner of thoughtful (and thought-provoking) endeavors—exhibits, documentaries, discussion forums, research, planning, workshops, dramatizations, lectures, and on and on—that pertain to the humanities.
We are a small organization, but we accomplish big things with our partners throughout South Carolina.
We help to build communities and move South Carolina forward as a state. SC Humanities reaches many rural areas, increasing the cultural capacity of local institutions and providing local economic impact.
