The LEH, thanks to the support of the NEH and the American Rescue Act, is offering general operating support grants for nonprofit humanities-based organizations in Louisiana impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rebirth Grants are the primary grant program of the LEH and support humanities projects across Louisiana, including public humanities programs with audience participation and discussion, documentary photography and radio projects, digital humanities projects including websites and online documentation of Louisiana history and culture, assistance with publication projects, new and continuing scholarly research about Louisiana, and humanities-based educational initiatives.
The Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street (MoMS) program brings high quality traveling exhibitions and educational programs to rural audiences and small museums. As the Smithsonian’s partner in Louisiana, the LEH works with rural museums to leverage Museum on Main Street exhibitions to build community capacity and highlight meaningful local contributions to small town life.
The new tour of Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street exhibition “Water/Ways” opens Saturday, May 29, at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve’s Wetlands Acadian Cultural Center in Thibodaux.Read More
