Hundreds of New Jerseyans are participating in these online community events.


Community Conversations is a public humanities program designed to foster discussions among New Jersey communities. Through online events, participants explore what democracy means, what opportunities are available, and what challenges exist for, nonprofits wishing to engage with civic life.


Throughout March and April, 2021, eight New Jersey colleges will host two-part online discussions among scholars, students, and community members. The Democracy Conversation Project will also feature In the Weeds, a signature NJCH follow-up series of events. In the Weeds will be hosted exactly one week after each initial conversation at noon, and is designed to ensure that event participants have the opportunity to explore and consider both big picture concepts and real-life application. The Democracy Conversation Project is funded by the Why it Matters: Civic and Electoral Participation initiative, administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils and funded by Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

At NJCH, we believe that everyone should have access to humanities programming. Based on your organization and desired topics/formats, we offer programs—often subsidized by our federal and corporate funding—so that you can bring high quality humanities programs to your audiences.
