Vision and Values
The humanities are central to creating and sustaining vibrant communities. They guide us in defining our individual beliefs, values, and aspirations. They help us to understand and engage diverse cultures. They support us in envisioning and building innovative economic opportunities and relationships. They allow us to interpret our past and imagine our future.
The Ohio Humanities Council serves as an advocate for the public humanities in Ohio. We promote the humanities through public programs, grants, and community projects with the goal of helping individuals and communities explore, share, and be inspired by the human experience.
