OREGON HUMANITIES LETTERS OF INTEREST DEADLINE SET
Last year, Oregon Humanities Public Program Grants funded many
conversations including that of three generations of women to talk about
a century of voting. Public Program Grants also supported community arts
and culture festivals, lecture series, and guided walking tours in rural
Oregon. Oregon Humanities is currently reviewing letters of interest
for Public Program Grants that use the humanities to connect Oregonians
to ideas that change lives, transform communities, bring together
diverse groups of Oregonians and that reflect collaboration between
organizations within a community. Oregon Humanities will accept letters
of interest postmarked no later than Oct. 31 for programs beginning
after April 1, 2012. For guidelines and other information, visit
HISTORIC BARN SURVEY PARTICIPATION REQUESTED
There is growing concern about the future of historic barns, farmsteads
and outbuildings - all part of our rich agricultural heritage. The
Historic Preservation League of Oregon recently placed two barns and one
farmstead on their “2011 Most Endangered Places” list. In an effort
to evaluate and address the needs of our rural architecture, a
collaborative OregonBARN initiative is seeking input from farmers,
preservationists and barn fans. Please take a few minutes to complete an
Oregon Heritage Barn Survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/R2YGFS8 .
