A Note From The Executive Director
April 1, 2020
As a month of unprecedented experiences for all of us ends and a new month filled with uncertainties begins, I want to know how you are doing. The past two long weeks have raised countless questions for each of us to ponder about who we are, how we work together…and apart, what our capacities are for adapting, and how we grapple with something we can’t see or touch, but that we know is there. These questions that creep into our minds when we are social distancing, or lying awake at night, are grounded in the humanities — in trying to understand and communicate the human experience. As Delaware Humanities navigates new ways to connect and build community despite our physical distances, we invite you to join us for our new virtual Distant Discussions programs. We urge you to listen, reflect, and perhaps even share, and in the process explore some of these big questions. And as you are going through your new daily routine, connect with us on social media and tag us at @dehumanities to let us know how you are doing.
For our partners, grantees, and humanities organizations throughout the state, we are closely following the latest developments in the Covid-19 crisis so that we can provide the most relevant information. We encourage you to follow the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement‘s (DANA) website for information and resources that can help you during the current crisis, including relevant funding information. Delaware Humanities will be learning more in the coming days about funds from the CARES Act that will be distributed to state humanities councils through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), so please follow our social media pages and visit our website for important updates. If you have any questions for us, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
