Hill-Stead Awarded $50K Grant For Sunken Garden Poetry Festival

We are thrilled to report that Connecticut Humanities awarded a $50,000 grant to Hill-Stead Museum due to the humanities-rich content of the proposed 2015 Sunken Garden Poetry Festival, which will include poetry writing workshops, interactive Prelude interviews with headlining poets, and opportunities to better-engage the community in poetry and language arts.  Especially of interest to CT Humanities was a shift in dates to allow for increased Festival attendance – a later start-date on June 24, and two weekend performances during the summer.  Connecticut Humanities, a nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, supports cultural and historic organizations that tell the state’s stories, build community and enrich lives.
