We are extremely grateful to Humanities Montana and the National Endowment for Humanities for awarding our organization a $5,000 CARES Act Grant earlier this year. Their rapid-response relief funding provided operational support to our non-profit (and so many others) during an extreme time of need. Thank you so much!! Check out what their relief grant helped to fund!
Much gratitude to the Montana Department of Commerce and the Montana Department of Public Health & Human Services for awarding our organization a grant as part of their Corona Virus Relief program. This grant will help to support every day operations, existing programing and future programming viability. Thank you so much!!!
Our “Thinking as a Community” public philosophy project stems from our belief in the importance of staying connected as a people, the richness and power of thinking together, the value of philosophy and philosophically driven dialogue across disciplines, the importance of cultivating of our personal and civic selves, and the vital role the humanities plays in this process. Our project will offer opportunities for communities to think together (on-line/digitally and in-person) via philosophy workshops and philosophy “walk”shops over the course of 2020 into 2021. We are tremendously grateful to Humanities MT and the National Endowment for the Humanities for their support of our project and for all of the amazing work they are doing in Montana!
Understanding ourselves and the world we live in is critical to our well-being – as individuals and communities. The questions (and answers) that arise from this sort of seeking — why we do the things we do, how we make meaning of our experiences in the world, what things we ought to strive for and how to best go navigate life – fall largely within the domain of the humanities. It is for these reasons alone (though certainly many more arguments in favor of the humanities can be made), that funding for the humanities is imperative. We are deeply grateful for organizations like Humanities MT and for their efforts to help keep the humanities alive and thriving in Montana.
