Through grants libraries are often able to bring unique opportunities to their communities. The programming that results from the grants can enable a community to grapple with issues of local interest. In this webinar, discover how two libraries used the National Endowment for the Humanities Created Equal grant to host community programs that would foster dialogue about underlying racial issues.
Join Lacy Wolfe for ideas on how your library can create programs to encourage a community-wide conversation on underlying racial, political, etc. issues.
Participants will learn and begin to master:
• How to effectively approach and communicate with community partners
• How to develop programs that appeal to various audiences
• How to start a conversation on a community-wide scale
