Expanding Public Access to History and Culture

The creation of enhanced grant making for projects that deal with the topics of immigration, cultural heritage, military history as well as the interpretation of historic sites and significant figures in history. Support will also be given toward continuing the development of the Council's website so as to incorporate a digital archive and online exhibition of grantee projects specifically related to American history and culture, and to set up tools to make the projects and the discussions that they inspire more widely available.

The Rhode Island Council for the Humanities (RICH) requests funds to expand public access to - and deepen public understanding of - American history and culture. RICH will accomplish these goals by: 1. Offering up to $35,000 in regrant funding to nonprofit organizations and individuals for public programming that explores history through any of the following: documentary film, reading and discussion programs, public lectures, teachers' institutes, exhibitions, publications, or media programs; and 2. Developing the components of our website that will enhance access and encourage online discussion and dialogue about issues of American history and culture.
