NEH on the Road: House and Home

Branigan Cultural Center is dedicated to engaging visitors in the heritage of the southwest and the world at large through artistic, cultural, and historical exhibitions and programs. We will host lectures, workshops for children, workshops for adults, films with discussions, and gallery tours. Ex. 1. Film Series on Homelessness (discussions lead in partnership with community action groups). This topic relates by shedding light on the stories of the homeless and their place in society. Visitors will learn about the challenges the homeless face on a daily basis. Ex. 2. Lecture on the breadth of house types found in NM from Pit Houses to McMansions. Visitors will learn about how the idea of home has changed through time and how houses went from a simple place to live to a shrine to consumerism. We would use the $1000 from the NEH as follows $500 for 4 lectures $200 for workshops $300 for Film Series
