Ideas Matter: The Democratic Dialogue Project

Dec 18, 2015

    In our Ideas Matter segment we take time just about every week to check in with the state humanities councils in our 7-state region.

Today we’re going to chat with Michael Washburn, Director of Programs at the New York Council for the Humanities, about that Council’s newest initiative, The Democratic Dialogue Project, a year long effort that will bring New Yorkers together to talk about the challenges of democratic citizenship today.

The Democratic Dialogue Project received significant funding this week from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Humanities in the Public Square effort.
