2012 DC Community Heritage Project Showcase
Thursday, December 6, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
Join us at All Souls Church as this year's DC Community Heritage Project grant award winners share their work with the public! The DC Community Heritage Project grant supports Washingtonians who research, interpret, and publicize the history of their communities. You are guaranteed to learn something new about Washington, DC!
The DC Community Heritage Project, is a partnership between the Humanities Council of Washington, DC, the DC Historic Preservation Office, and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. It began in 2005 as a way to empower communities to construct their own local history narratives, preserving DC's collective memory in advance of rapid changes. Each year, the program offers symposia on local history best practices, workshops on house history research, a grant cycle, and a showcase at which community historians, scholars of local history, and the general public can network and discuss the innovative field work conducted by DCCHP grant award winners.
This year's program will feature...
1. An expo-style showcase at which project directors and scholars will demonstrate their innovative work in DC community history.
2. A keynote address from a public history scholar
3. A brief film featuring all 2012 DCCHP grantees and their work
4. Catered refreshments
We look forward to seeing you there!
