The national voice for cultural, creative & ethical thinking

The world is experiencing rapid and far-reaching social and technological change. As it grows increasingly interconnected and complex, the humanities empower us to think and act creatively and critically, to reason, to ask questions and to solve problems.

We are the voice for the humanities in Australia, championing their unique role in understanding the past, explaining the world we live in, and imagining and shaping the future.
