Wyoming Humanities announces locations for “Discuss & Construct” grant program

After an extensive competitive grant process, Wyoming Humanities is excited to announce the communities and organizations to host its newest project, Discuss & Construct.

The following Wyoming communities were ultimately selected for the grant project. This list also contains the sponsoring organization and the anticipated 2024 date for the “discuss” portion of the program:

o Casper: Natrona County Library with the Casper College Library – Feb. 17

o Cody: Wyoming Equality – April 11

o Laramie: Youth Justice Institute through Laramie Plains Civic Center – April 27

o Sheridan: Uprising – Feb. 3

With this new opportunity, Wyoming Humanities will provide funding for organizations to host difficult conversations in comfortable places, then create community engagement projects for 2024.

“Through civil conversation, communities can better come together to solve problems and accomplish goals,” said Lucas Fralick, program coordinator for Wyoming Humanities.

This program is presented as part of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ initiative, United We Stand: Connecting Through Culture.

Each organization will receive up to $6,500 to implement both phases of the project.
