With the help of Drexel University, we’re on a mission to map, network, and celebrate the wonderfully rich humanities landscape with a project called the PA Humanities Discovery Project. Across the state people like you are building community, making space for new voices, sharing stories, uplifting culture, educating, solving problems creatively — what we call the tools of the humanities (even if many wouldn’t use that word). This work has been especially critical during the pandemic, keeping us connected and inspired, while encouraging resilience and recovery.
Help us tell the first-ever story of the humanities across Pennsylvania and together we’ll build a more inclusive and connected community for sharing, learning, and advocacy.
We’re seeking Pennsylvanians that work to make their community a better place. Maybe you collect family history, host a book group or story slam, organize festivals, create community murals, develop educational programs, research and produce stories, or use writing for health and wellness. This project is expansive and aims to show what you uniquely do!
The PA Humanities Discovery Project is a joint effort of PA Humanities and Drexel University. Funding comes from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
