What are the humanities? Simply put, humanities is the study of how people connect to human experience through history, culture, and traditions.

According to the Missouri Humanities website, www.MOhumanities.org – “The humanities allow us to explore the stories of people who have come before us, appreciate places that have changed over time, and learn ways of thinking past in order to shape a better future for generations to come.

Missouri Humanities programs remember the past by exploring Missouri’s heritage, sharing veterans’ stories, preserving Native American and Civil War history, and cataloging artifacts and archaeological sites.

We are focused on the future by supporting statewide environmental sustainability, providing adult education opportunities, and promoting the development of youth literacy statewide.

Missouri Humanities has supported a variety of programs and activities in the West Plains region. The WPCA is pleased to welcome this opportunity to meet Ashley Beard-Fosnow and establish a lifelong connection with Missouri Humanities.
