The New Jersey Council for the Humanities is thrilled to be celebrating its 50th Anniversary, and would like you to join us for the celebration!
Please save the date for the gala, which will be held at Morven Museum and Gardens in Princeton on September 29, 2022.
The event will begin with a cocktail reception at 6 PM and seated dinner at 7 PM, will include music, a “humanities moment,” and the presentation of the inaugural Stanley N. Katz Prize for Excellence in the Public Humanities.
In 1965, the National Commission on the Humanities declared “Democracy demands wisdom and vision in its citizens. It must therefore foster and support a form of education, and access to the arts and the humanities, designed to make people of all backgrounds and wherever located masters of their technology and not its unthinking servants.” In that spirit, the National Endowment for the Humanities and state humanities councils were formed to democratize knowledge and to share the joy of the humanities widely.
NJCH has taken those words to be central from its founding in 1972 to today. We hope you will join us as we celebrate the past and commit to another 50 years of connections, lifelong learning, and humanities work in the Garden State!
