On Wisdom and Vision: Humanities Organization in Illinois during COVID-19 (Report)
Title: On Wisdom and Vision: Humanities Organization in Illinois during COVID-19
Author: Lyon, Gabrielle
Author: Hallett, Mark
Author: Yoo, Jenn
Abstract: The On Wisdom and Vision: Humanities Organizations in Illinois during COVID-19 report tells about 177 humanities organizations from across the state that have kept their doors open through the pandemic and supported their communities through a time of isolation, political upheaval, racial injustice, and economic uncertainty. This Report looks at the community of organizations supported by $710,000 Illinois Humanities COVID-19 Emergency Relief Grants funded by the federal CARES Act and explores – through data and interviews – the ways in which organizations found ways to keep their doors “open,” despite extensive financial and audience loss. In the midst of the pandemic, they conducted work on racial inequity, provided powerful programs and essential support in struggling communities, and demonstrated their resilience.
