Request for Proposals

Seeking Public Humanities Projects that explore the Subject of Work

The Working Lives Project takes a humanities approach to a subject we all know something about: Work.

We know that the subject of work is hotly debated and under scrutiny. We believe the tools of the humanities can help us reflect deeply, act wisely, and grow empathy and respect for each other.

To this end, we have issued a Request for Proposals on the subject of work. We encourage community organizations across the state to submit grant proposals for projects about the past, present and future of work. Projects must focus on the human aspects of work and working, broadly defined.

Wondering what a public humanities project about work looks like? Click here to see some past WHC grant-funded projects about work.

To apply, use the regular grant applications and deadlines.

As always, you are encouraged to,contact Mark Livengood, Grant Program Director, with questions and ideas: (608) 265-5595, rlivengood@wisc.edu

Whether it is the challenge of racism or conflict over ideological differences, empathy can make change happen.

WHC-funded programs across Wisconsin enabled kids and adults to see the world through another person's eyes. Because of your support, someone's understanding of the world will be transformed.

"Bringing 'The Lost Boys' to campus helped me to discover a great deal about others -- and myself...[without this program] I may never have heard about the lost boys -- and grown from their powerful stories," said a participant at a program about Sudan.

WHC programs teach empathy. Empathy can change the world.

Your generous gift today will ensure that the WHC continues to enrich all of our lives, and every community. Your support helps bring us all together.
