SC Humanities, in partnership with South Carolina State University, the South Carolina Federation of Museums,
Staff, officers, and Board members of SC Humanities, the South Carolina Federation of Museums, the McKissick Museum, South Carolina Arts Commission, South Carolina Department of Archives and History, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation will lead the workshop, which will include a session on general grants writing techniques, an overview of local and federal funding opportunities for cultural projects, and time for networking and feedback on project ideas and application drafts. This workshop offers a unique learning opportunity for cultural organizations of all sizes and provides a chance for partnership building between local organizations with similar missions.
Dr. Randy Akers, Executive Director of SC Humanities, said: "SC Humanities is fortunate that it still has grant monies available for quality community-based public humanities programs. We know that resources are tight, and we must partner with other organizations of similar mission in order to use our funds to fullest potential. Workshops like the one in Orangeburg are intended to provide citizens with access to funding sources, information, and resources that will give them a chance to raise necessary funds."
Though the workshop is free and open to the public, pre-registration is required. Registration is now closed. For more information about the Grants Writing Workshop for Community Cultural Projects, contact T.J. Wallace at 803-771-2477.
