Oregon Humanities is seeking scholars, artists, community leaders, innovators, provocateurs, and other engaged thinkers to be leaders for the Conversation Project, a program that offers Oregon nonprofits free, humanities-based public discussion programs about provocative issues and ideas. Conversation Project discussions are led by humanities experts who receive conversation facilitator training from Oregon Humanities. These conversation leaders connect a particular subject to participants’ experiences and to the local community, and model critical thinking without advocating a particular political agenda.
Conversation leaders receive a $200 honorarium, as well as mileage reimbursement and a meal stipend, for each approved program. Leaders must be residents of Oregon. Conversation Project programs will be available from November 1, 2013, through October 31, 2015. Proposals are due March 8, 2013.
Due date: March 8, 2013
