HNY Community Conversations unite people from across New York to discuss how communities can endure and connect during this period of our history.
The COVID-19 pandemic laid bare the cracks in our social contract, yet it also renewed interest in civic engagement and rearticulated our common purpose. Following on the Democracy and Public Health conversation between Merlin Chowkwanyun and Celina Su, Humanities New York invites tax-exempt organizations anywhere in New York City to host a Community Conversation focused on exploring the human and political dimensions of public health policies and crises.
Interested organizations must identify a facilitator, register on Humanities New York’s grant portal, and fill out a brief application. For assistance, email us.
Applications open Monday, April 3, and close on Monday, May 1.
As the impacts of COVID-19 continue to unfold, Humanities New York is adapting to circumstances with the flexibility and transparency that the moment requires. HNY staff is happy to work with applicants as they navigate the contingencies of the virus, making projections about dates, venues, and/or online platforms. The Grant Review Committee will evaluate proposals with the ongoing public health crisis in mind, fully aware that cultural organizations across New York State face an unprecedented situation.
Eligible grant projects may be in-person, digital, or hybrid, so long as the project retains its public-facing orientation. HNY understands that securing dates and venues is difficult at this time, and that event dates are subject to change. To that end, we ask that you share the best available details when you apply. You may address your Covid-19 contingency plans in the appropriate field of the application. Should your proposal be awarded and you need to change the grant period, you can request a grant extension at any time.
As always, should you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out by email to [email protected].
