2018 Activities Report
In the last year, the West Virginia Humanities Council awarded 51 grants and 11 fellowships, and supported more than 350 programs and events in 47 counties
We proudly announce our first class of master artist and apprentice pairs in the West Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Program. The program offers up to a $3,000 stipend to West Virginia master traditional artists or tradition bearers working with qualified apprentices on a year-long in-depth apprenticeship in their cultural expression or traditional art form.
The History Alive! program features scholars from around the state who portray historical figures at venues including museums, schools, libraries, community centers, and fairs and festivals.
The latest issue of our newsletter, as well as our FY 2018 Annual Report, are both online now.
Please support the historic MacFarland-Hubbard House, our headquarters. The property serves as an active programming venue, and is itself an important community landmark.
The West Virginia Humanities Council serves West Virginia through grants and direct programs in the humanities. Formed in 1974 at the invitation of the National Endowment for the Humanities, it is the principal organization promoting the humanities in West Virginia.
