FREE

Join us for a grants workshop and learn how you or your organization can get funding, training, and support for oral history projects about Washington, DC! The application deadline for both of the opportunities below is January 25, 2019.

For New Oral History Projects:

Help us preserve the unique stories of Washington, DC residents! This opportunity provides financial and capacity building resources to community organizations and individuals (“partners”) interested in conducting oral history projects. Potential projects may focus on: neighborhoods, social organizations, political history, labor, faith-based groups, cultural trends, historic events, or other themes that lend themselves to oral history as a tool for research and preservation. Partnership proposals will be reviewed in February, and selected projects will be announced in March.

For Public Projects Using Existing Oral History Collections:

This opportunity provides financial and capacity building resources to community organizations and individuals (“partners”) interested in using existing oral history collections to produce public humanities projects. Potential projects may focus on: neighborhoods, social organizations, political history, labor, faith-based groups, cultural trends, historic events, or other themes that can draw on one or more collections of oral histories. All projects must be thematically focused on Washington, DC and must benefit the residents of Washington, DC. Potential projects may include: exhibitions, listening stations, written research, film/video, curricula for K-12 and higher education, websites, computer applications, and many more. Partnership proposals will be due in January, reviewed in February, and selected projects will be announced in March.
