Oklahoma’s gateway to humanities education, community conversation, and cultural experiences.

Hometown Teams

Hometown Teams

Oklahoma City, OK - The Oklahoma Humanities Council (OHC) invites museums, libraries, and historical societies in towns with fewer than 20,000 residents to apply to host the Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition called Hometown Teams. The exhibit will tour six Oklahoma communities from March 2015 through December 2015. For more information on Museum on Main Street, please visit www.museumonmainstreet.org.

The fee to apply is only $500. OHC and the Smithsonian handle all other costs. The six weeks each community hosts the exhibit offers a rare opportunity to increase visitation, visibility, and community pride.

Host sites will be selected based on geographic location, evidence of strong community support, strength of proposed ideas for supplementary events, and physical event space.

OHC staff may conduct a site visit to collect additional information prior to final host site selection. Applications are due October 1, 2013. The Oklahoma Humanities Council will work with an organization every step of the way to ensure a successful tour for that community.

About Hometown Teams:

Sports are an indelible part of our culture and community. For well over one hundred years sports have reflected the trials and triumphs of the American experience and helped shape our national character. Whether it’s professional sports, or those played on the collegiate or scholastic level, amateur sports or sports played by kids on the local playground, the plain fact is sports are everywhere in America. Our love of sports begins in our hometowns--on the sandlot, at the local ball field, even in the street. Americans play sports everywhere.

Building on this national theme, host sites in Oklahoma develop complementary programming or exhibits that highlight their own hometown sports history.

Host site applications are available online at www.okhumanities.org. For more information about this opportunity, please contact Caroline Lowery, OHC Program Officer, at 405/235-0280or via email [email protected]

Each of the programs will be led by a two-person team consisting of a humanities scholar and an educator or librarian, all of whom are experienced discussion facilitators.

The great work is that the visitors can record their audio story by downloading the Smithsonian’s stories from the main street app as they enter the exposition. The application is free, but the visitor’s smartphone data charges will apply.

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.
I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
