2016 Preservation Special Projects Recipient
The Preservation Special Projects program offers funding for neighborhood survey/inventory, landmark registration, project planning, research, advocacy efforts and more. We encourage projects that highlight historic places in innovative ways, utilize new technology, and engage new audiences.
In 2016, 10 out of 20 proposals received a total of $85,000 in awards ranging from $2,066 to $10,000. A portion of Lodging Tax revenues collected in King County provides all of the funding for this program.
If you don’t already have a project in mind, you may want to consider something that corresponds with regional efforts to explore the life, work, and legacy of Seattle photographer and ethnographer Edward S. Curtis in 2018. Throughout that year, cultural organizations around the region will host exhibits and events that promote dialogue around the complex cultural issues surfaced by his life and work. To learn more about these efforts, contact staff.
