To build strong communities and inform citizens by providing Floridians with the opportunity to explore the heritage, traditions, and stories of our state and its place in the world.
Established in 1973, the Florida Humanities Councils develops and funds public programs and resources around the state that explore Florida’s history and cultural heritage, literary and artistic life, environment and development, issues and ideas, communities, and traditions. Florida stories come to life through the humanities; by definition, its disciplines explore the human experience. When we tell stories unique to our sense of place, we add to the rich narrative of the state’s history and heritage. We are particularly interested in projects that are collaborative, attract diverse audiences, encourage active participation from the public, and explore humanities topics and disciplines in interesting and engaging ways.
