For forty years the Wyoming Humanities Council has been the sole nonprofit public humanities organization in the state, and its mission of community building through conversation and critical thinking is the core of an informed, engaged democratic citizenry. The council offers common spaces for sharing and considering diverse perspectives, grant funds for humanities-based projects, and programs such as the Humanities Forum that are widely used by libraries, museums, and other non-profit cultural centers across the state.
