Here you'll find Oregon Humanities projects that don't fit into our main categories of grants, conversation, and publications.

Dear Stranger
Dear Stranger is a recurring letter-exchange project that connects Oregonians through the mail to share experiences, beliefs, and ideas. Since 2014, almost 1,000 people have exchanged letters through the project. Everyone is invited to participate—whatever your age, your place of residence, or your circumstances, Dear Stranger wants to hear from you.

Community Storytelling Fellowship
The Community Storytelling Fellowship is awarded annually to Oregonians who belong to communities that are underrepresented in Oregon media. Each fellow receives $5,000 to support the creation of true stories about those communities—journalism, creative nonfiction, and multimedia—to be shared in Oregon Humanities magazine and other publication.

Fields Artist Fellowship
The Fields Artist Fellowship awards $150,000 each to four artists or culture bearers over a two-year period. The fellowship is presented by the Oregon Community Foundation and Oregon Humanities.

Oregon Poet Laureate
The Oregon Poet Laureate fosters the art of poetry, encourages literacy and learning, addresses central issues relating to humanities and heritage, and reflects on public life in Oregon. Oregon Humanities administers the Oregon Poet Laureate program for the Oregon Cultural Trust.
