Tools of the Trade: New Virtual Events for Humanities Programmers

A flyer with headshots of the event moderator and four speakers in addition to details of the event.Join us on Thursday, November 18 at 10 am to adapt your humanities programming skills in an interactive learning session geared for public humanities program providers. “Programming in a Pandemic: Options for Physically Distanced Programs” will feature four innovative California Humanities grant project directors as they share practical tips and lessons learned from their recent experiments with a variety of approaches to physically distanced public programming: outdoor film screenings, exhibits, and installations, performances, author talks, and hands-on workshops. California Humanities Board member Professor Oliver Rosales of Bakersfield College, an experienced public humanities programmer himself, will facilitate the conversation with you and our panelists. Bring your questions, experiences, and ideas to share! More information and registration details are available here. 

The session is the second in a series of free, online learning sessions for public humanities providers and practitioners that launched last fall with strategies for virtual programming. Topics addressed throughout the series in the coming year will include working with humanities advisers, increasing visibility with media and opinion-makers, reaching new and underserved audiences with effective outreach programming strategies, and creating inclusive experiences for people of all abilities. Tools of the Trade: A Practical Series for Humanities Programmers provides opportunities to learn from one another and promote connections within our field, wherever we work. 

Stay tuned for more about the series in the coming months. In the meantime, if you missed Programming in a Pandemic: Virtual Programs, Real Conversations, you can check out the recording here
