Kansas 150: Preparing for Statehood

Funding will support a range of projects including the development of resources for the Council's speakers bureau, book and film discussions, civic forums on contemporary issues, and grants for community projects that bring people together to examine historical and contemporary Kansas.

Kansas 150: Preparing for Statehood continues the Kansans Tell Their Stories initiative that encourages communities to identify and share their unique, one-of-a-kind histories, especially stories of statehood and the Civil War. Kansas 150 moves beyond the telling of independent stories and seeks ways to bring these stories together for statewide discussions about the last 150 years. Expanding upon an examination of Kansas history, this initiative is intended to examine contemporary Kansas and invite Kansans to share ideas about the future. Kansas 150 will support preparations for Statehood in 2011 including the development of resources for speakers bureau, book discussions, film discussions, and civic forums on contemporary issues. In addition, special Kansas 150 grants will support documentary shorts, research, exhibitions, oral history projects, public forums, podcasts, video podcasts, and other projects that bring people together to examine historical and contemporary Kansas.
