Oregon Humanities (Portland, OR 97205-2827)
Adam Davis (Project Director: August 2016 to present)

Oregon Humanities Community Conversations 2017-2020

Implementation of a three-year program of community discussions statewide, with a specific focus on reaching underserved rural and Spanish-speaking residents.

Oregon Humanities (OH) will increase the impact of our successful Conversation Project by connecting more Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities. With NEH support, OH will ensure that every county in Oregon has regular access to high-quality humanities-based discussion programs and a relevant and welcoming model of convening community members for reflective conversation across differences of belief, political affiliation, race, class, language, and educational background. OH will build more, and more diverse, partnerships with host organizations, with greatest attention to rural and Spanish-speaking communities; grow our team of discussion leaders with attention to geographic, ethnic, racial, and topical diversity; and develop annual responsive statewide community conversation initiatives that will provide deeper public programming opportunities through scholar cohort work and educational toolkits. The result will be a more resilient and connected Oregon.
