David Bearinger

Virginia Humanities
Director, Grants & Community Programs
Charlottesville, Virginia
David Bearinger is Director of Grants and Community Programs at Virginia Humanities. His work explores the story of Virginia; the history and diverse cultures that have shaped Virginia over four centuries (and for thousands of years prior to European arrival); and the issues that confront Virginia and its people today. Over the past 35 years he has led Virginia Humanities in awarding more than 2,500 grants, supporting thousands of programs engaging communities in every city and county in the state as well as audiences nationwide. He has also directed multi-year, community-based projects on The Bill of Rights, American Indian Education, African American History; and Science, Technology, and Society, and developed regional humanities networks in Appalachian Virginia, Western Tidewater, Northern Virginia, and the Eastern Shore. His current work focuses on using difficult history to heal and bring communities together; and on the personal stories of immigrants and refugees who are challenging and redefining what it means to be a Virginian in the 21st century.
