Description:

The NHC was established as a state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities in 1973, primarily to award grants. By the 1980s, the NHC realized that in Nebraska, grants alone were not enough to reach the entire state, and subsequently started a Humanities Resource Center with traveling exhibits, videos and films, and a Speakers Bureau that now includes nearly 300 humanities programs. Other NHC programs now include Chautauqua and its scholars portraying historical characters, Capitol Forum on America's Future for high school students, the Prime Time Family Reading Time reading and discussion program, Museum on Main Street exhibitions from the Smithsonian, the Nebraska Book Festival, and the annual Governor's Lecture in the Humanities. The Nebraska Foundation for the Humanities works with the Council to secure private monies and advocate for public funding to support these programs.
