Libraries are in a unique position to create a safe space for collaboration and dialogue in their community. In this webinar, discover how two libraries used the National Endowment for the Humanities Created Equal grant to host community programs that fostered dialogue about underlying racial issues.
Join Lacy Wolfe for ideas on how your library can create programs to encourage a community-wide conversation on underlying racial, political, etc. issues.
Participants will learn and begin to master:
- How to effectively approach and communicate with community partners
- How to develop programs that appeal to various audiences
- How to start a conversation on a community-wide scale
