NJCH believes in harnessing the power of the humanities to strengthen New Jersey.
Over the past 50 years, we have supported countless dynamic and engaging humanities programs created by a diverse community of partners from around the state.
Many of the programs we support are created by small and mid-sized organizations that have limited staff or are primarily volunteer run. Some have trained humanities practitioners and scholars on staff, but many do not. This means that they are often learning how to do humanities-focused work while juggling daily operations and may not yet have the expertise or infrastructure to do it as well as they’d like.
That’s where In the Weeds comes in.
About the Program
In the Weeds aims to strengthen New Jersey’s public humanities sector by targeting small and mid-sized organizations—and the people who make them run.
Events in this program will include professional development and skill-building for individuals working on humanities programs, capacity building for organizations, and opportunities for all of us to come together for learning and networking. We will feature organizations and individuals doing humanities work in New Jersey and beyond, and really dig into how they make it happen.
We have so much to learn from each other. So let’s get “In the Weeds!”
