Natick Historical Society Wins Mass Humanities Grant
Mass Humanities announced the awarding of $250,000 to 59 nonprofit organizations across Massachusetts, including Central MA, through funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Natick Historical Society was awarded $2500.
A new round of grants from Mass Humanities will give museums, historical societies and other cultural organizations the opportunity to reach their audiences digitally as the COVID-19 pandemic persists. From laptops to website upgrades, mobile walking tours to virtual exhibits, the Digital Capacity Grants announced today provide residents with access to their heritage despite social distancing.
“These grants are part of our ongoing response to the pandemic, but they also provide a preview of the future of public humanities programming,” said Mass Humanities Executive Director Brian Boyles. “As we begin to rebuild from the impacts of this crisis, our communities deserve the chance to engage with each other and our cultural heritage. It’s also clear that the digital space offers organizations the chance to build their audiences.”
