Discussion Grants support projects that include face-to-face conversations about humanities topics. Projects allow for the exchange of thoughts, opinions, and ideas in response to almost any kind of text or event: reading circles, films, talks, performances, tours, exhibits, lectures, and more. For example, formats can include a film-and-discussion series, a one-time event that includes active reflecting and discussing, or the creation of an exhibit or walking tour along with a discussion.
All nonprofit, educational institutions and government organizations that serve Massachusetts residents are eligible to apply.
