Humanitini Curator Grant

Submissions are currently closed.

Request for Proposals

HumanitiesDC is offering the opportunity for you to present your original humanities research through the Humanitini Curator Grant. Each Curator creates a public humanities program based on their research or area of expertise. As part of the application, prospective curators need to fully describe this research topic, and where it is situated within a wider humanities field. This opportunity is part of the Humanities Grant Program supported with funding from the District of Columbia Government through the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

The public programs will follow HumanitiesDC’s successful Humanitini model that brings thoughtful humanities discussions to Washington, DC’s happy-hour scene. View the Curator guide for producing a Humanitini program here. Curators must budget for a professional videographer to film their Humanitini program and edit the footage, and an ASL interpreter to provide interpretation at the program. Curators will also write an evaluative report on the challenges and successes encountered while translating their research for a public audience.
