Catkin Kilcher Burton (Project Director: May 2016 to present)

State Humanities Program

To support local humanities initiatives and state humanities council operations.

The mission of the Alaska Humanities Forum is to use the humanities to tell the stories and impact the lives of all Alaskans. The Alaska Humanities Forum is a non-profit organization affiliated with the National Endowment for the Humanities that began operation in 1972. Its purpose is to promote the exploration of ideas, human values, and public issues that concern Alaskans today. The Forum furthers this work through its grants program, leadership programs, youth and educator cross-cultural programs, by convening many discussions and public events, and through the FORUM magazine, monthly newsletter, and other publications. The Forum believes that projects rooted in history, philosophy, literature, traditional wisdom, and other studies in the humanities contribute to the quality of life in meaningful ways.
