CALCON 2020: Show Me the Money: the ILCE-IG Grant Explained. Video available

A panel representing past awardees of the ILCE-IG Grant and members of the ILCE-IG presented on the ILCE-IG grant on September 10 during the CALCON 2020 annual conference.

Program Description:

Inspired by international librarianship? Are you working on an international or multi-cultural project that could use a little boost? Since 2016, the International Library & Cultural Exchange-Interest Group (ILCE-IG) has awarded small grants that have helped fund projects such as first language children’s book publishing, conferences and workshops, exhibits, and multi-cultural festivals. Past awardees with projects in Africa, Central America, and within Colorado will present on their projects with focus on a successful application and the outcomes of their projects. Steering committee members will be available to discuss the timeline and brainstorm projects that might be considered for the grant.
