Chicago Historical Society (Chicago, IL 60614-6038)
Nancy Villafranca-Guzman (Project Director: May 2020 to October 2021)
Chicago History at Home

The retention of ten staff members to continue the Chicago History at Home initiative, which provides online public programming, lectures, and tours exploring Chicago history for audiences of all ages.

CHM is seeking support to retain staff in our education, publications, curatorial, and external relations departments who are working on Chicago History at Home and are critical to CHM carrying out its mission during the current crisis. Unable to serve the public through onsite exhibitions and events, we have quickly transitioned to offering a suite of interpretive digital encounters with Chicago history that are broadly available. We are also sharing history activities and educational resources with students, caregivers, and teachers who face the challenge of remote learning. Public programs, such as tours, seminars, and meetups with staff will be made virtual. These community connections are propelling the Museum forward as we weather the pandemic.
