Indiana Humanities offers INcommon Grants to Indiana nonprofits, in support of humanities-based programs that spark in-depth conversation, insight and consideration of others’ points of view on the persistent social, economic, cultural and racial issues that divide our communities—including topics such as immigration, gentrification, incarceration, policing, institutional racism and the legacies of segregation. Projects may include reading series and civic reflection discussions; public lectures or panels; film screenings and discussions; or the creation of exhibits, web projects, walking tours or documentary films. Special priority will be given to projects that include community discussion and conversation at the heart of their proposed activities.

Funding for INcommon Grants is provided by Indiana Humanities (through the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, a federal agency) and the Central Indiana Community Foundation.
