Previous Applied Humanities Events

On a periodic basis, the Hall Center hosts interactive panel discussions and networking sessions with leaders from local and regional arts and humanities organizations. Over the years, representatives from libraries, archives, museums, cultural institutions, arts groups, foundations, public broadcasting, and a host of non-profits have participated in these programs, which offer insights and practical advice on how to obtain positions in these fields.

The Applied Humanities Boot Camp, a week-long total immersion experience that takes place at the Hall Center during the third week in May, provides a corps of competitively-selected students with an introduction to the range of practical skills necessary for success in the applied humanities field, including budgeting, marketing and promotion, media relations, scheduling, public programming, partnership development, fundraising, graphic design, exhibit development, and project management. Boot Camp participants also work collaboratively in teams with a mock $20,000 budget to develop comprehensive public programming plans to commemorate a significant historical anniversary.
