Our response during the global pandemic.

Covid-19 Resources

The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic has upended life for all Vermonters, as it has for people around the world.

Vermont Humanities is postponing our public events for the foreseeable future. More about this decision. During this time of social distancing, we are meeting our mission by sharing videos, podcasts, and online resources, and converting some events to digital-only presentations.

We are now focused on helping those most affected by the pandemic, including individuals and organizations in our statewide cultural sector. Our partner in this effort is the Vermont Arts Council.

Together with the Arts Council, we have distributed Emergency Relief Grants to aid Vermont arts and/or humanities organizations that are experiencing hardship due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
