RENO — Nevada Humanities will hold informational grant workshops in Las Vegas and Reno for organizations throughout Nevada interested in applying for funding to support public humanities programs.
The Reno workshop will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesday at the McKinley Arts & Culture Center, 925 Riverside Drive.
The hour-long workshop is free and open to anyone interested in learning more about applying for humanities project grant funding from Nevada Humanities. Attendees can prepare by reading grant guidelines at www.nevadahumanities.org.
Nevada Humanities offers grants of up to $5,000 to nonprofit organizations and government entities, such as libraries and schools, to fund public programs and educational programs in the humanities. The next deadline for proposals is Oct. 10. Mini-grant requests of up to $1,000 can be submitted at any time.
Nevada Humanities is especially interested in funding projects that promote community through various forms of engagement and projects that encourage conversation. This can be through face-to-face dialogue, such as lectures, forums and roundtable discussions, but also through programs that stimulate thought and reflection, such as media productions, film screenings, exhibitions, local history projects and projects that explore local culture and Nevada’s diverse heritage and unique places.
Nevada Humanities is Nevada’s nonprofit council affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. With offices in Reno and Las Vegas, Nevada Humanities creates public programs and supports public projects statewide that define the Nevada experience, feature local culture and heritage and facilitate the exploration of issues that matter to Nevadans and their communities.
