Think. Read. Talk.

Welcome. We're glad you're here. Whether on purpose or by accident, you've turned to Indiana Humanities because you're someone who enjoys the humanities (history, literature, cultural studies, philosophy or ethics, etc.), or as we like to say: you enjoy thinking, reading and talking.

Maybe you've come to find resources for your community, to learn about something or to have conversations (online or in person). Take a look around—we hope you find what you're looking for. And if not, just ask. We're here to help.

About us
What we do

create

We engage Hoosiers in statewide conversations by asking questions and working with a variety of partners to create one-of-a-kind programs that encourage us all to think, read and talk.

support

We support communities by partnering, providing resources, building capacity, connecting, listening and uplifting.

convene

We serve as a neutral convener for people to come together, since community grows from conversation.

fund

We support Indiana nonprofits with grants for public humanities projects.

Featured Program

Unearthed

Unearthed is a multiyear thematic initiative from Indiana Humanities that encourages Hoosiers to explore how we shape the environment, and how the environment shapes us.
