Humanities Montana is now accepting online applications for2015 Hometown Humanities. The deadline for applications is February 27, 2015. Any Montana community with a population under 20,000 is eligible to apply. Previous Hometown Humanities locations include Miles City, Dillon, and Lincoln County.
Hometown Humanities brings a year’s worth of humanities-based programming to a single community—15 to 25 events all free of charge and open to the public, selected from Humanities Montana’s extensive program catalog. Humanities Montana staff works with the selected community to design a schedule that includes public speakers from its Speakers Bureau and Speakers in the Schools programs, community conversations on local issues, reading and discussion groups, and an array of other possibilities.
Hometown Humanities supports the particular cultural interests of a Montana community, and explores the capacity of the humanities to enrich lives, foster inquiry, and stimulate civil and informed conversations about the human experience. It gets people talking—sometimes about challenging and sensitive subjects—in ways that broaden perspectives and bring people together.
