Measurable Outcome(s)

The Public Humanities program at MHC provides all Minnesotans opportunities to build relationships, listen to stories, and learn from one-another. Work supported includes the design and development of a Somali-youth anthology, community events across the state (in Duluth, Ely, Grand Rapids, Granite Falls, Moorhead, Red Wing, St. Cloud, St. Paul, Winona) in which participants considered how the humanities could support solutions to community issues and opportunities, and more than 25 organizations in communities across the state (including the Twin Cities, Saint Peter, Cloquet, Luverne, Duluth, Sandstone, and St. James) received grants to implement activities and events that amplify the erased and marginalized voices, experiences, cultures, and stories in their communities.

Project Overview
