Oregon Humanities offers conversation and grants

Oregon Humanities has announced two programs, The Conversation Project and Public Program Grants, for the benefit of Oregon nonprofits.

In The Conversation Project, nonprofits may apply for “free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. Conversations are facilitated by some of Oregon’s most respected humanities scholars.”

Nonprofits may begin applying for these programs beginning Aug. 1. More information is here.

Twenty-three nonprofits, including the Willamette Heritage Center at the Mill in Salem, received public program grants this year totaling $80,000. Letters of interest for 2012 Oregon Humanities grants must be postmarked by Oct. 30.

The Heritage Center won a grant of $4,500 for recreation (pictured here) of an historical Kalapuya shovelnose canoe as part of its exhibition on The Grand Ronde Canoe Journey.
