Nevada Humanities


Nevada Humanities creates public programs and supports public projects statewide that define the Nevada experience, feature local culture and heritage, encourage intellectual curiosity, and facilitate the exploration of issues that matter to Nevadans and their communities. Founded in 1972, and now with offices in Reno and Las Vegas, Nevada Humanities is one of 56 nonprofit state and territorial humanities councils affiliated with the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Nevada Humanities programs include Nevada Humanities Chautauqua, the award-winning Young Chautauqua program, the Online Nevada Encyclopedia, the Literature & Medicine reading discussion program, the Vegas Valley Book Festival, Humanities on the Road, and statewide outreach programs and collaborations. Nevada Humanities performs the dual roles of conducting humanities programs of its own and re-granting state and federal funds designated for this purpose to Nevada nonprofit organizations to support the creation of dynamic projects. Nevada Humanities programs are implemented statewide, in both rural and urban parts of the state, and its constituents are the residents of Nevada.
