Conservation project programs available
Oregon nonprofits are invited to join the more than 180 organizations and community groups that have hosted public discussions through Conversation Project, which offers free, humanities-based programs about provocative issues and ideas. The Conversation Project is a program of Oregon Humanities.
Conversation Project programs bring people together for thoughtful and inspiring discussions that are designed to improve understanding of diverse perspectives on a given subject.
Conversations are free to host, last between 60 and 90 minutes, and are led by humanities experts who have been trained as conversation facilitators.
The 2013-14 Conversation Project lineup features 22 programs.
Topics include censorship in literature, rural and urban interdependence, black history in Oregon, rethinking downtowns, how gender shapes our lives and many more. Themed discussion series are also available.
Through Jan. 31, Oregon nonprofits may apply to host Conversation Project programs that take place between March 1 and June 30.
The Conversation Project catalog, instructions for host organizations and a downloadable application form are available at oregonhumanities.org.
See the website’s events calendar for Conversation Project programs currently happening in counties throughout the state.
