Tools of the Trade

Want to brush up on your outreach and marketing skills? Hear about the innovative work colleagues in museums, libraries, and cultural organizations are doing? Want to learn how academic and public humanities providers collaborate to engage their communities through relevant and responsive educational activities? Consider joining us for the summer session of Tools of the Trade. This free online series aims to provide public humanities practitioners with practice-based information and resources to help our field recover and strengthen in the wake of the pandemic. Registration is now open! 

On Thursday, June 16,Reaching New & Underrepresented Audiences” features project directors from around the state. In conversation with California Humanities Board Chair Dr. Oliver Rosales, these presenters offer insights and tips gleaned from their recent programming with various hard-to-reach audiences. Our second summer session, “Increasing Your Visibility with Decision Makers and the Media,” on August 18, highlights successful practices and practical tips from recent California Humanities-supported projects.  

Each Tools of the Trade session allows time for audience interaction and engagement. We encourage you to bring your own insights and experiences to share and your questions. 

This series is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and the NEH Sustaining the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan (SHARP) initiative.
