  • Share with your community that you’ve been chosen to host a Discussion Project. After you’ve been awarded a Discussion Project and have touched base with your MHC Point Person, we strongly encourage you to make an announcement online—on social media, in your e-newsletter, on your website.

    • Announcement Web Image (Use for Facebook, Twitter, websites, an e-newsletter, and other digital uses) 
    • Announcement Instagram ImageWhen dates and details are confirmed, your MHC Point Person will provide you with a branded flyer and web image to help to publicize your event(s). We ask that you do not alter the provided MHC branded images. If it’s your organization’s policy to include your logo on publicity materials, you are welcome to create your own and include an MHC logo.
  • Program Description (For sharing in a press release or other publicity) 
    A program of the Maine Humanities Council, Discussion Projects offer comprehensive support to individuals and organizations all over Maine who want to convene members of their community for rich discussions, grounded in texts, of things that matter to them.  Whether the people in a group are linked by their work, their place, or their lived experience, Discussion Projects foster real communication and connection among participants through listening and being listened to. Every project’s discussions are grounded in the group’s shared experience of a compelling text or set of texts.
