Indiana Humanities has officially dropped the word “council” from its name and adopted a new identity and logo to better reflect the organization’s mission and its role in the statewide community.
The word “council” no longer describes the work we do—which is to engage Hoosiers in the public humanities through exciting and engaging programs. In 1972, when our organization was created, we made more Council-like decisions.
Today, we are known more as a convener, leader and partner. Visually and verbally we want to portray that we support human interaction and dialogue, which is why you see the emphasis on “human.” The overlapping circles evoke energy and inclusion—feelings that we want people to associate our work with. Learn more about our thought process behind the rebranding, here.
Indiana Humanities has a long history of feeding the mind and the community through programs like Food for Thought by using literature, history, art, music, philosophy and our shared cultural heritage as a foundation for understanding and improving our lives. We think this logo and name change better reflects that history and our future.
What do you think about the new look? How does it make you feel about our organization? The humanities in general? What is it about the humanities that makes them ‘human’?
