Our Mission

The mission of the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities is to connect people with ideas that broaden perspectives, enrich lives and strengthen communities.

Our Vision

Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities seeks to use the public humanities to nurture the joy of learning, and inspire community and civic engagement.

We aim to bring the humanities to hard-to-reach and nontraditional audiences across the state.  Our goal is to improve the quality of life in Hawai‘i through public programs that apply the humanities to everyday lives to help strengthen communities and encourage civic dialogue.
