Apply for HumanitiesDC Grants For 1968-themed Projects
HumanitiesDC has opened its new grant season and is offering DC Community Heritage Program Grants (DCCHP) for up to $2,500 for 1968-themed projects.
I encourage you to think broadly about 1968. Are you part of a 1968 Alumni Association group? Did something significant happen in your neighborhood or your religious institution? Do you want to study and share art, music, sports, etc in 1968? Consider applying for the grant.
Please note that the applications are due 12 January 2018. There is a webinar tomorrow, 9 November. There are also other webinars and writing workshops in November and early December. Click here for dates.
Through a partnership between HumanitiesDC and the DC Historic Preservation Office,* the DCCHP was convened in 2005 as an alternative to the “top-down” approach to community history that was placing interpretation of the cultural heritage of District of Columbia neighborhoods into the hands of developers and non-residents. Since its inception, the DCCHP has supported nearly 175 diverse, hyperlocal heritage projects, capturing the memories of native Washingtonians who have watched their city rapidly change. These small projects are showcased annually and digitalized to be accessible to the public online in our DC Digital Museum.
