The Rhode Island Council for the Humanities is excited about the 2022 Celebration of the Humanities which will feature our signature awards as well as a keynote speaker. The program will be aired on YouTube and available to all. A small gathering with honorees and supporters is planned for July – more details to come.
Now we need your help! The call for nominations for the 2022 Celebration of the Humanities Awards is open. Nominate Rhode Island leaders who connect the humanities and civic life in ways that build bridges through empathy and understanding.
