To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, we revisit powerful stories that convey the transformative impact of civic engagement and the skills citizens need, then and now, to go the distance building a prosperous democracy.
The exhibits accompany “Telling Our Story” by Nancy Austin, PhD featured in the Council's 40th Anniversary Report, published in January 2014.
In hopes to trace the cumulative impact of Council grant making over four decades, we have selected three representative themes:
- The Lively Experiment, engages Rhode Island’s exceptional Colonial Charter—350 years old this year—and its legacy of tolerance and the principle of separation of church and state.

- Our Stories, Our Rhode Island, conveys the achievements of immigrant and heritage histories.

- Place Making, suggests the significant role that Council grants have played in the revitalization of Providence and other Rhode Island locales.
