About Delaware Humanities
Mission: Delaware Humanities provides educational and arts outreach, special projects, and funding opportunities to bring Delawareans together. We connect cultural, educational, and civic institutions statewide to provide public events that enhance our understanding of who we are, where we’ve been, and where we are going as individuals, communities, and citizens of Delaware.
We are Delaware’s independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Here are some of the major events we have helped bring to life and the organizations we have supported in recent years:
Bowers Beach Buccaneer Bash ( Bowers Beach Maritime Museum)
Delaware Young Playwrights Festival (Delaware Theatre Company)
History Book Festival (Greater Lewes Foundation)
Raising Kings Conference (One Village Alliance)
Wilmington Writers Conference (DelArt museum)
Yorklyn Storytelling Festival (Cab Calloway Foundation)
We also host a wide array of Speaker programs and Environmental Humanities events. Check them out on our website: dehumanities.org
