About The People's Colloquium

What is The People's Colloquium?

The People’s Colloquium is a 501c3 nonprofit based in Portland Oregon that awards grants to organizers who provide free educational offerings in the arts and humanities either locally in Portland or available through the world wide web.

These grants are intended to cover operational costs related to the grant offering. For example, the cost of owning a account that hosts reading groups; printing costs for a pamphlet related to an in-person seminar; or the stipend for a lecturer.

What is The People's Colloquium's mission?

Our mission is to alleviate the financial burdens so that organizers can focus on what they do best: building community, facilitating events, and promoting learning. The People’s Colloquium strives to play a small part in creating a world where anyone can learn anything, at anytime, regardless of costs and without barrier.
