At PA Humanities, we believe in the power of storytelling to cross barriers and build connections. Explore stories of how PA Humanities teamed up with people and communities around the state to use the humanities as a tool for everything from youth development to community building to lifelong education. These stories show how the humanities are helping to shape Pennsylvania’s future.

The PA Heart & Soul journey emphasizes playing the long game, and that’s evident in the creation of award-winning public spaces, the implementation of projects identified as important to the community, the continued involvement of volunteers and even in the election of former volunteers to local public offices.
