Apply here to host a screening and community discussion about Arab Indianapolis: A Hidden History and receive $250 to help cover event costs.

Hosts are asked to develop programs that are free and open to the public, to use the Discussion Toolkit below, and to fill out a short survey after the screening to let us know how things went. Please apply at least three weeks before you would like to host your screening and discussion.
