In the age of Covid-19, Vermont Humanities strives to continue to offer cultural programming safely and in accordance with State and Federal guidelines. This includes community hosted events such as our Speakers Bureau events, Reading and Discussion series, or Vermont Reads programs.

Hosting Online Events

When contemplating whether to host an event consider whether the event can be done virtually. Virtual online events remain the safest option to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19.
