Kentucky Humanities

“Thanks to the Kentucky Humanities Council, PRIME TIME absolutely helped us solidify our place in our community as an informal learning environment, a place that holds more than books, an open, welcoming place with worthwhile meaningful programs for all ages. We reached the Hispanic community for the first time with this program.”

Our Mission

Kentucky Humanities is dedicated to telling Kentucky’s Story through programs and services that create a legacy of pride in the wealth of Kentucky culture, building civic engagement, and supporting local humanities programs and events. We strive to enable all Kentuckians to take part in learning, sharing, and teaching each other about Kentucky’s rich heritage. We are committed to providing leadership and developing resources that support the needs of Kentuckians to examine our values, understand our common heritage, and build stronger Kentucky communities based on the knowledge, insight, and respect inherent in the humanities.

About Us

More than just history, by Kentucky’s story we mean Kentucky’s writers, inventors, judges, musicians, architects, doctors – in short, the contributions from every walk of life to the quality of life in Kentucky. We recognize a need to build civic engagement as well as literacy, and we want to involve all ages and all places from Pine Knot to Princeton. Everyone has a story to tell, and everyone can learn from the stories of others. These stories, taken together, are the stories of our communities, our counties, our regions, and our unique Kentucky culture and heritage. They are the basis of our pride and the basic premise of community.
