A Message about COVID-19

All of us at the Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well. Your health and well-being are our highest priority.

In an effort to combat COVID-19 and consistent with the Executive Order issued by Governor Tim Walz this week, MHC will be closing our building until April 13. MHC will continue to operate online. Please continue to visit our website.

We know that this is an unprecedented time for everyone. The events of the past few weeks have cause a significant amount of pain, anxiety, and uncertainty in our lives.

One thing you can count on in these uncertain times is that MHC is committed to you – to creating in our state a just society that is curious, connected and compassionate.

During this extraordinary time, we are exploring how we can move more of our offerings online so that you can continue to enjoy the humanities from your home. Our April 23, Warrior Writers Workshop will be hosted online.

We are also working to create new and inventive ways to expand our virtual offerings so that we can continue to provide quality humanities experiences and meaningful connections, now, when we need it the most.

History is replete with instances of our resilience and ability to emerge triumphantly after crisis. MHC intends to stay connected with you.

We looks forward to the new dawn ahead of us.

All the best,

Kevin Lindsey
