Our Work

Connecting people to and through the humanities

Committed to being a vibrant voice for the humanities

Guided by stewardship and based on community needs, program practicality, cultural relevance, and execution feasibility, our work is done by and for all Louisianans—the people who study, explore, and create, and ultimately the diverse audiences who experience these living, lasting contributions. In this recursive cycle of study, the humanities facilitate vital connections to our shared history, traditions, and values.
