Welcome to the Alabama Humanities Alliance

We celebrate thinking. We encourage inquiry. We live for surprising discoveries. We exist to join together those who hunger for knowledge and create a sense of belonging among those who desire to learn. We are more than an organization — we are an alliance of thinkers. We are the Alabama Humanities Alliance.

Thinkers Wanted

Calling all thinkers, learners, and aspirers. We challenge you to be more curious, confront your assumptions, dare to investigate, and never stop asking “Why?” Come with us on a quest to learn, every day. Join the Alliance.


AHA gives all Alabamians opportunities to explore the humanities through funded public programs such as seminars, workshops, lectures, exhibitions, documentaries, and more.
