Colonial Williamsburg Foundation (Williamsburg, VA 23185-4138)
Beth Kelly (Project Director: May 2020 to October 2021)
Explore From Home: Using 21st-Century Technology to Tell Our 18th-Century Story

The retention of eight employees and one additional position to expand social  media engagement and create new virtual tours of historic sites interpreting the period of the American Revolution.

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation seeks funding from NEH to help retain eight current positions and create one new one to maintain and enhance digital program offerings to our audiences, especially students and teachers. Since March, Colonial Williamsburg increasingly has pivoted to digital content to tell our 18th-century story through a vibrant social media and on-line presence via a variety of platforms. The Foundation deployed a new streaming television channel in April. This constitutes a major change in how we present the nation's largest living history museum to the public and we expect to continue and expand this approach in the future.
