The humanities are our collective repository for the best that's been thought and felt within our culture. It's through the humanities that we can bridge the distances between us and interpret--together--the shared experience of being alive. While the humanities tend to be undervalued during tough economic times, it's times like these when we need them the most. Washingtonians are fortunate to have Humanities Washington working to keep the humanities vital throughout our communities.
