Speakers Bureau: Humanities Out Loud
One of SC Humanities’ longstanding program priorities is the Speakers Bureau. Through this program, some of South Carolina’s finest scholars travel throughout the state to share their interests and knowledge of the humanities and to spark discussions about human values, traditions and cultures.
SC Humanities makes these programs available to non-profit groups and public agencies at a reasonable cost. SC Humanities provides $250 towards speaker honorariums, which covers full speaker payment for the majority of programs; any other costs are negotiated between speaker and sponsor. All programs must be free and open to a general public. Each sponsoring organization is limited to two programs per year. While SC Humanities pays $250 towards each speaker’s honorarium, the sponsoring organization must match this cost with in-kind contributions and any cash expenses the organization may incur, including travel expenses. The sponsoring organization is also responsible for making all arrangements, publicizing the event and providing final evaluations of the program.
