Illinois Humanities supports humanities projects that help to strengthen community life. This grant is aimed to host public discussions about contemporary issues. These grants allow more people to act as trained facilitators or moderators of public discussion across the state of Illinois.
Illinois Humanities works to build dialogue across all sectors of society to examine issues important to democracy in the focus areas of public policy, media & journalism, business, and art. Using the humanities as tools to stimulate discussion, experiences are created across Illinois through programming, events, and grant-making to engage a diverse public on ideas and issues that matter.
MALA is very grateful for this grant and partnership, and we look forward to bringing engaging events that connect, engage, and inspire a broad range of communities. Stay tuned for upcoming events and programs!
