2023 Annual Report

Thanks to your support, participation, and partnership in 2023, Oregon Humanities has been involved in so many good things in so many formats and places across the state and the country.

We held community conversations about about topics like democracy, aging, and the environment; awarded grants and fellowships to organizations and people doing creative, connected work in all parts of Oregon; conducted facilitation training for groups and leaders not only around Oregon but also in Colorado and Delaware and online; offered college humanities courses to adults with low incomes and high schoolers nearing graduation; organized workshops about creativity and reconciliation and identity; shared so many stories by Oregonians for Oregonians in our magazine and online, in English and in Spanish; produced podcast episodes exploring things like the experience of immigrating from Cambodia to Corvallis and how poetry builds cities. And plenty more.

None of this would have been possible without our partners, contributors, donors, and friends, who hosted and led community conversations; wrote, read, and suggested stories; came out for onstage conversations; asked questions and talked with neighbors; and supported our work with generosity, dedication, and hope.

We are fortunate to do this work with so many people in so many places around Oregon, and I feel incredibly grateful for how your participation makes it all possible. On behalf of Oregon Humanities’ staff and board, thank you so much.

—Adam Davis, Executive Director

Programs Summary

 

In 2023, our fifty-second year as an organization, the staff at Oregon Humanities stepped into our mission with intentional and fresh approaches to enduring programs and publications. Using our updated strategic framework, we brought people together with curiosity, consideration, and compassion. These efforts led to some impressive outcomes: We collaborated with 161 contributors to share 167 stories in print, online, and over the airwaves. We doubled our number of Community Storytelling Fellows. Our Consider This events drew over 3,600 people in person and another 3,500 online. We also tripled our number of rural programs, hosting events in Joseph, Talent, Redmond, and elsewhere.

Learn more about some of the initiatives, events, and partnerships that connected Oregonians in 2023:

  • Housing conversations: Throughout the summer and fall, we partnered with organizations across the state to host community conversations about housing and belonging. This series was inspired by a frequently requested Conversation Project program led by Paul Susi. Paul helped us train four new facilitators—Jacquelle Cherise Davis, Yimei Shao, Julia Waters, and Reeva Wortel—to lead important discussions about homelessness and explore the question of who “belongs” in our communities.
  • Belonging on the airwaves: In January, we launched a three-part series about organizing on The Detour, our monthly podcast and radio show. The episodes covered civic participation, Black political power, intergenerational justice, and labor movements. In November, we started a four-part series about belonging. Topics included immigration and emotional exile, the importance of stories in the LGBTQ+ community, and what it means to preserve the history of Black Oregonians. We capped the series off with conversations with students at Fern Hill Elementary School and Crestview Heights Elementary about how to help others feel like they belong.
  • Live-screening popular programs: Consider This guests reflected on People, Place, and Power through the spring and then on Fear and Belonging in the fall. Three of these conversations were screened live for an audience 300 miles from Portland. Participants gathered in La Grande to hear Mónica Guzmán talk about communicating across divides; Alexander Baretich, Matt McCaw, and Carina Miller discuss redrawing borders; and Casey Parks share stories about family, identity, and belonging. Each time, the watch party submitted questions for the speakers and discussed among themselves about how the topic manifested locally. 
  • Being present throughout Oregon: We know there is much to be gained by physically showing up. This year, we focused our time and effort in showing up in Southern Oregon through a range of activities. In April, with grant support from The Ford Family Foundation, we held a So Much Together program in Talent, bringing together twenty community members for a workshop on creativity. In September, we gathered in Phoenix with over thirty supporters and friends to celebrate our board chair, Bobby Arellano, concluding his term. Finally, in early November, we took Consider This to Grants Pass for an onstage conversation about Aging and Belonging.
  • Accessibility: There was a major staff-led effort to focus on how our programs, media, and events can be more accessible to people with disabilities. We worked with an accessibility and inclusivity consultant to grow our staff’s collective understanding of disability justice and accessibility accommodations. Every department identified areas of improvement and started to implement meaningful changes.
  • Fundraising: Partnerships are as vital for our fundraising as they are for our programs. This past winter, we partnered with Willamette Week's Give!Guide as one of 250 nonprofits in their annual giving campaign. We received over $30,000 in donations, while spotlighting several nonprofit and local business partners and practicing many of the principles of community-centric fundraising.
