Humanities Curators Grant Applications Due Friday

After this spring and summer, it's time to talk

What programs will Curators develop in the wake of the pandemic and nation-wide protests for racial justice?

Applications for the Humanities Curators Grant are due this Friday, July 31stHumanitiesDC is looking forward to the broad range of programming the awarded curators will produce for the coming fall. Though many upcoming Humanities programs will take place virtually, the schedule is sure to be filled with insightful, must-hear conversations led by scholars working in the academy and in Washington, DC's neighborhoods and communities. It is difficult to predict the topics that will be proposed, but it's likely that some prospective curators will apply for programs related to COVID-19 and the city's ongoing protests for racial justice. We believe that documenting the voices of Washingtonians on the front lines of these historic events is a key responsibility for HumanitiesDC and the wider community of public humanities practitioners in the city. 

The maximum award for the Humanities Curator grant is $5,000. That award level was established to recognize that the requirement to create a professionally edited film is an extra cost. Prospective curators planning to conduct virtual programming are likely not to have this expense and should adjust their requested amount and/or budget accordingly. 

The Curator grant is open to individual applicants who can assemble thoughtful panels of experts for public discussions on humanities-focused themes. Past programs have covered: neighborhood history, gentrification, DC’s Ethiopian community, food culture in DC, voting rights, civility in public discourse, the history of 1968 in DC, and many more. 

HumanitiesDC is open and excited about your ideas! Visit website to review the updated request for proposals, and begin your application at http://grantapplication.wdchumanities.org

These opportunities are part of the Humanities Grant Program supported with funding from the District of Columbia Government through the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
