Michigan Humanities Council

“What I love about the MHC grant program is that it pushes us in the field to broaden our perspective, and subsequently, our impact. Because of your vision, my vision is wider for what we can accomplish and how we should do that.”

Our Mission

The Michigan Humanities Council connects people and communities by fostering and creating quality cultural programs.

About Us

Throughout its life, the Michigan Humanities Council has understood that the humanities teach us what it means to be human. They illuminate the lessons of the past, the ideas that motivate us, the principles that guide us, and the questions that perplex us. For over 40 years, the Council has served a central idea: that democracy depends upon educated and thoughtful citizens who fully participate in civic life.
