Maryland Humanities is working with resilient local humanities communities—communities where the humanities play a central role in public life and where local stakeholders actively support humanities organizations’ work—to demonstrate and leverage the value of this work. We are convening humanities organizations in various regions around the state to explore how we can work with such communities to effectively build and sustain these networks over time. Maryland Humanities is currently working with four regional humanities networks: a Lower Eastern Shore Humanities Network based in Salisbury, a Western Maryland Humanities Network based in Frostburg, a Southern Maryland Humanities Network based in St. Mary’s, and Capital Region Humanities Network in Laurel. 

We are focused on how organizations in different sectors—including but not limited to community organizations, universities, colleges, libraries, museums, and historical societies—can pool their resources in order to assess, enhance, and communicate their public impact in ways that ultimately foster greater regional support for the humanities. The result of these convenings is that local humanities organizations will build networks, collaborate, share resources, and demonstrate to local stakeholders and policymakers the value of humanities work in their communities.
