RE-presentation through Community Narratives
Under the tutelage of applied anthropologist and FireWorks Executive Director Asiyah Kurtz, one apprentice will spend eight weeks interviewing, facilitating discussions, and documenting the personal narratives of community members to be used in a storytelling presentation of the apprentice's choosing. NJCH is honored to sponsor this apprentice’s work in our home city of Camden.

How to apply
Organizations that are interested in applying for an NJCH sponsorship should review the sponsorship guidelines below. If your organization meets the eligibility requirements and you believe your work is a fit for our program, please contact Valerie Popp, Director of Strategic Initiatives, via email at email@example.com or by phone (310-701-5203) to discuss your sponsorship idea. Applications submitted without prior communication with NJCH staff will not be considered.
NJCH gives priority to Sponsorship requests that:
- Support areas that are underserved in the NJ humanities ecosystem (i.e., geographic, demographic, institutional type, humanities disciplines)
- Support events/programs with a large number of attendees or viewership
- Support activities with low-cost or free attendance
- Provide equitable access to the humanities or educational/professional development opportunities for humanities-serving institutions
- Support activities that meet NJCH’s strategic priorities, but whose structure is not suited to NJCH’s current grantmaking programs or initiatives
- Support organizations not recently funded by NJCH grants
- Demonstrate a clear sense of the activity’s marketing and visibility potential, including logo placement, digital promotion, program inclusion
- Support rapid response programs that address recent events that have had a strong impact on New Jerseyans and that would benefit from a humanities perspective. In those cases, standard expectations about timing may be waived on a case-by-case basis.
