The Georgia Humanities Coucil (GHC), founded in 1971, supports programs on the culture and history of the State of Georgia by working with cultural and educational institutions to carry out each program.
GHC programs are intended to increase awareness about the history, stories, and ideas that inform our lives. The programs also allow for individual development in making informed decisions for the future.
As a result, the GHC helps individuals understand themselves and others, provide continual learning opportunities that are important for a functioning democracy, and provide opportunities for reflection and thoughtful discussion that help enhance learning experiences.
The GHC's work includes a number of programs and partnerships such as: The New Georgia Encyclopedia (NGE), National History Day in Georgia, Georgia's state humanities grants program, the Georgia Governor's Awards in the Arts and Humanities, Museums on Main Street (MOMs) traveling exhibits, Prime Time Family Reading Time, and more.
One of the most popular programs of this year is the Smithsonian Museum on Main Street ehibit tour of "New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music." It is touring 12 sites in Georgia from April 2012 through November 2013.
