BECOME A HUMANITIES FORUM PRESENTER
Each year the Wyoming Humanities Council changes the Humanities Forum roster to keep presentations fresh for audiences. Applications to become a Humanities Forum presenter are due June 15 and are for programs beginning November 1, of the same year. Presentations stay on the roster for a period of two years.
The Humanities Forum features programs by outstanding presenters who travel throughout Wyoming to speak at meetings and special events. Each presenter engages the audience in an active discussion of his or her topic. Not-for-profit groups and public agencies may host up to two Humanities Forum programs per year. The only cost to the host organization is a $50 application fee; all other speaker expenses are covered by the council. Programs must be free and open to the public.
HOW TO APPLY TO HOST A HUMANITIES FORUM
- Contact the presenter directly to arrange a program date and time. Programs must take place between November 1, 2011 and October 31, 2012. Please be sure to allow at least one hour for the presentation and group discussion that will follow.
- Discuss your expectations for the program (audience size, age group, any special themes) with the presenter and ask about audiovisual needs.
- Print out and complete the application form available online in the forms section of this site or request a form be sent via mail or fax.
- Mail the completed application form to Wyoming Humanities Council with your application fee of $50 at least two weeks before the program date. Advance planning is encouraged as funds are limited.
You will receive confirmation of your program booking within approximately one week.
