CHICAGO—The Illinois Humanities Council (IHC) invites grant applicants to a public Major and Mini Grant workshop on Wednesday, October 26, 2005, at 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. This workshop will be held in the Carnegie Room North of the Lincoln Public Library, 326 South 7th Street, Springfield.

IHC program officers will staff the meeting and field questions about applying for grants for various types of projects, including documentary films, local and community history projects, literary symposia, and oral history projects. The IHC makes it a priority to fund projects developed by, for, or aimed at reaching new or historically neglected audiences.
