The Humanities Action Lab (HAL) is a coalition of universities, issue organizations, and public spaces in 40 cities, and growing, led from Rutgers University-Newark, that collaborate to produce community-curated public humanities projects on urgent social issues. Students and stakeholders in each city develop local chapters of international traveling exhibits, web projects, public programs, and other platforms for civic engagement, all made possible by our visionary supporters. Projects travel nationally and internationally to museums, public libraries, cultural centers, and other spaces in each of the communities that helped create them.


We always welcome new institutions to join our projects, so please get involved, or reach out if you have any questions.
