Grant Opportunity from the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance for Small Cultural Organizations — Information Session on Thursday, July 16
On Thursday, July 16 from 2 pm – 3 pm the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance will hold an information session for people interested in the TechniCulture Innovation Reidency Award.
The award will allow three cultural organizations to participate in micro-residencies with experienced technologists, who will help them assess and focus their immediate digital needs to most effectively serve their mission. The goal of the residencies, valued at $2,000 each, is for each organization to emerge with a clear understanding of what type of digital project or application is best suited for them at this time.
I hope you have all seen this recently announced new grant sponsored by the NEH Division of Public Programs: Digital Projects for the Public. The lead time for the first round is pretty tight. Proposals are due by June 11.
