Join Illinois Humanities Executive Director Gabrielle Lyon, for a conversation about their recently-released report on the impact of COVID-19 on public humanities organizations in Illinois, and their plans for the future. Illinois Humanities, the Illinois affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, is a statewide nonprofit organization that activates the humanities through free public programs, grants, and educational opportunities that foster reflection, spark conversation, build community, and strengthen civic engagement. Illinois Humanities provides free, high-quality humanities experiences throughout Illinois, particularly for communities of color, individuals living on low incomes, counties and towns in rural areas, small arts and cultural organizations, and communities highly impacted by mass incarceration. Gabe will follow her presentation with a Q & A session. Register to attend
