      “The Humanities provide the most practical education. The Humanities teach us to think reflectively, to begin to deal with the new as it occurs to us, to dare.” - Earl Shorris: American writer, founder of the course in the Humanities and author of Riches for the Poor.

     Halifax Humanities 101 has been inspired by this vision of bringing the riches of Humanities education to those living below the poverty line. Each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, students gather at a local library to participate in lectures, engage in discussion, and exercise their minds in a safe, supportive and encouraging environment.

     For absolutely NO COST, students are able to study with university professors and read classic texts in philosophy, literature, history and art. All books and reading materials are provided FREE, as well as bus tickets, refreshments and child care if needed.
