inspiring. engaging. enriching.
The humanities are how we understand ourselves and our world and how we communicate that understanding to others. South Carolina 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.
In Fall 2022, South Carolina Humanities celebrates fifty years as the humanities council representing the Palmetto State.
Here’s how we plan to celebrate this golden milestone:
› A new traveling exhibition, Resilience and Revolution: Native Peoples in 18th Century South Carolina ‹
› The publishing of Golden: The First 50 Years of South Carolina Humanities ‹
› An evening of celebration on March 11, 2023 that is not to be missed ‹
How can you get involved?
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.
