NEH Podcast Grant For Women in Architecture

The Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation has received a significant grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for their work on a major podcast series, called New Angle: Voice, dedicated to preserving and sharing the incredible lives of the most influential women in the history of architecture and design.This series, which has been awarded a $100,000 NEH grant, offers a valuable example of how digital media plays an essential role in the preservation of women’s histories.  The NEH announced about $31.5 million in grants last week for 226 humanities projects from across the United States, supporting a wide range of projects from education and scholarly pursuits to the preservation of archives and digital media.The outright award for audio documentary series New Angle: Voice – Pioneering Women of American Architecture, cites the project director Cynthia Phifer Kracauer, AIA, executive director of the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation (BWAF). In the announcement, NEH describes the podcast as “a multiplatform project about the history of women's contributions to American architecture.” It was awarded under the grant category of the Division of Media Projects Production.
