Grants of up to $5,000 to Florida nonprofit organizations, public institutions, and municipalities to host a traveling exhibit. Funding is intended to develop public programming along with presenting the exhibit, with priority given to projects that benefit new and underserved audiences, rural communities, and communities with fewer than 25,000 residents. The exhibition must be open to the public for a minimum of 20 hours per week.
Grants will support participation in the statewide tour of Water/Ways, which explores the endless motion of the water cycle – from water’s effect on landscape, settlement, and migration, to its impact on culture and spirituality. Access to water and control of water resources is also a central part of political and economic planning. Interactive stations in the Water/Ways exhibition provide visitors with opportunities to explore water from both scientific and cultural perspectives as well as encourage conversations about water’s enduring impact on daily lives and culture.
For additional information about the exhibition, see: https://floridahumanities.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/2021-WaterWays-RFP-FINAL-10-8-20-B.pdf#page=2
All selected exhibition host sites are required to design and develop complementary public programs to enhance the exhibition content. Programming should bring the broader exhibit topic down to the local level and help tell your community’s own water story. Local content possibilities include the impact of water on local settlement, work, and transportation; discussion of public water policies; exploration of the impact of environmental movements at the local level; and, the impact of water on the natural landscape.
Programs may be presented in-person or virtually and may occur before, during, and/or after the exhibition is hosted locally. Examples of program formats include:
