Wyoming Humanities Council

The Alliance for Historic Wyoming is honored to be partnered with the Wyoming Humanities Council. The Humanities Council is Wyoming’s state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and its mission is to help Wyoming take a closer look at life through the humanities. According to the Council’s website, they “foster opportunities for communities to interact and discuss issues that are important to them. We use the humanities to ask questions that give insight into the human experience by analyzing the past, exploring the present, and thinking about the future.” The Alliance for Historic Wyoming takes a similar approach with a more specific focus on fostering a statewide preservation ethic, which makes the Humanities Council’s support so important to us.
