Funding will support a range of activities on the theme of Memory and Place, including a lecture series, a literary and art competition for young people, publication subsidies for a photographic documentary project, commissioned oral histories, and grants for research.

This thematic proposal focuses on the recognition, documentation and public appreciation of places of memory within the United States Virgin Islands. The over-arching vision is to facilitate the conceptualization of collective and individual memory regarding place and to advance futuristic visions that nurture community cohesiveness and considers the humanity of all members of our society. Five recognized Virgin Islands literary agents will provide their insightful perspectives on different aspects of the theme. Partnership grants and initiatives will also advance the growth of the local cultural heritage tourism industry by facilitating the production of written, graphic and cultural materials that document varied narratives of place. The proposal responds to select recommendations from the successful “We the People” 2007-08 Cultural Heritage Tourism conference. Activities include a lecture series; a youth literary/art competition; photographs; oral histories; and research grants.
