In 2021 we launched new grant programs and now budget twice as much money for community humanities grants than in previous years.
We’re pleased to be providing more opportunities for different kinds of community organizations to access flexible funding when they need it most.
These exhibits, teacher trainings, and panel discussions are powerful ways of engaging with the Vermont community. We have been pretty much overlooked in Vermont’s history, so these events have brought us a lot of self-esteem and pride.

Vermont Humanities*** November 26, 2014
Poet Sarah Audsley joined us at the Taconic Mountains Ramble State Park for Words in the Woods.
Humanities Camps are filled with reading and writing projects, field trips, and outdoor activities.
We won a 2020 Schwartz Prize for best public humanities programming in the U.S. for Vermont Reads 2019: “March: Book One.”
We supported Historic New England’s “More than a Market” project that explored the experiences of new Americans through food markets.
Our free public events help bring the power of the humanities to communities across Vermont.
