Connecticut Grown Humanities.

Engaging people in the history, literature, and culture of Connecticut.

Help Grow Connecticut Humanities

Connecticut Humanities is rooted in the fabric of our communities as we help seed and support local organizations and outreach efforts that grow our understanding, connection and awareness.


We’re about connecting people and ideas.

Connecticut Humanities encourages curiosity, understanding and critical thinking, providing leadership through grants, partnerships and collaborative programs. We produce wonderful programs throughout the state in libraries, schools and community-based organizations, and while they are all important, there is a common thread among them: connecting people and ideas.
