What Our 2022 Humanities Montana Grant Helped to Support
Our organization was awarded a $3,750 grant for our 2022 symposia series by Humanities MT and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Funding from this grant, helped to support five unique community events (a 2-part series in Spring & a 3-part series in Fall), each of which invited discussion and question about the complex terrain of “being human together.” See how funds were used across these programs here!
