CTH Funded Projects Pivoting in Response to COVID-19

More than ever, people need the humanities. They uplift, inform, inspire, soothe, challenge, and connect us. So, when the COVID-19 crisis closed the doors at our state’s humanities organizations, new ways of connecting were needed. The following is a listing of several of our grantees who have met the challenge with virtual programming and online exhibits – some have completed the transition and some are still in progress.
