Tools of the Trade: A Practical Series for Humanities Programmers

To advance our goals of supporting the public humanities field and assist with recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, California Humanities is pleased to offer a series of free online learning sessions in 2021-2022 to help build and rebuild the capacity of individuals and organizations to provide relevant, responsive, and engaging programs in our communities. Tools of the Trade will spotlight the innovative and creative work being done by California Humanities’ grantees and partners. We will provide opportunities for everyone working in the public humanities field, wherever they may be, to learn from one another and strengthen our sense of commonality and common purpose.

In the online sessions, we will: 

  • Hear short presentations by programmers across the state
  • Learn how your peers in libraries, museums and cultural organizations are creating safe ways to offer public programs and engagement
  • Share your own experiences and ask questions
