“Democracy demands wisdom and vision in its citizens.”
—National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act of l965
The Humanities Media Project (HMP) in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas, Austin, promotes the importance of the humanities not only at the University but also throughout the state and the nation. Our goal is to tell human stories and invite critical conversations that educate, inspire, and connect individuals and communities. We believe that the humanities play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy, democratic society.
