Congratulations to the new recipients of Humanities for All Quick Grants. Each of these projects offer meaningful insights into the diverse ways Californians share, offer reflection, and celebrate the humanities in their daily lives. The projects range from a youth-generated journalism and photography project that captures portraits and stories of community members in Folsom, to a theater work and talk-back based on interviews with women experiencing homelessness, social service providers, and community members in Arcata. Another new project features a multimedia documentary project on the history of AIDS activism in the Asian & Pacific Islander community in Los Angeles. This cohort reflected significant geographic diversity and will support programs in communities across the state. Included in this round of awards are projects that were selected to receive our Arts + Humanities and Youth Voices grant designations.
This cohort of awarded programs will take place across the state through July 2019. Humanities for All Quick Grant public events are happening all across the state. Check out one near you on our events calendar, like Workshop: Baskets Then and Now on Saturday, September 22 at 9:30 am at the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History.
