PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Humanities awarded over $25,000 to non-profit organizations in the Berkshires from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
 
A new round of grants from Mass Humanities will give museums, historical societies and other cultural organizations the opportunity to reach their audiences digitally as the COVID-19 pandemic persists. From laptops to website upgrades, mobile walking tours to virtual exhibits, the Digital Capacity Grants announced provide residents with access to their heritage despite social distancing.
 
“These grants are part of our ongoing response to the pandemic, but they also provide a preview of the future of public humanities programming," said Mass Humanities Executive Director Brian Boyles. "As we begin to rebuild from the impacts of this crisis, our communities deserve the chance to engage with each other and our cultural heritage. It's also clear that the digital space offers organizations the chance to build their audiences.”
 
In Berkshire County:
  • Berkshire Museum - $5,000
  • Edith Wharton Restoration, Inc. - $3,050
  • Norman Rockwell Museum - $5,000
  • Sheffield Historical Society - $1,440
  • Tamarack Hollow Nature and Cultural Center - $4,625
  • The Bidwell House Museum - $3,650
  • WAM Theatre - $5,000
 
In total, 59 non-profit organizations across Massachusetts received an award. In total $250,000 were given out.
