The Humanities exchange assists museums in their endeavors to cope with their changing audiences, the escalating financial pressures of organizing exhibitions, and the proliferation of new information and techniques of presenting exhibitions and reaching audiences.

The Humanities Exchange acts in an advisory capacity, and as a liaison to assist in facilitating all of the details of organizing traveling exhibitions.
