SeeOhioFirst.org

Prototype for a statewide website and mobile application showcasing Ohio humanities and cultural resources.

Ohio Humanities requests a prototyping grant of $100,000 to expand its cultural heritage tourism initiative by developing SeeOhioFirst.org to be a comprehensive, content-rich digital portal showcasing Ohio's rich and varied humanities resources. As the home of First Peoples and the birthplace of astronauts, the human story plays out across the landscape of Ohio. The natural and built environment of the state has contributed to the national story—as a gateway to an expanding nation, as contest ground for empires and contemporary politics, as a proving ground for invention and innovation. SeeOhioFirst.org will include thematic landing pages, a searchable database, and mapping tools to provide the first curated overview of the state's historical and cultural assets. Our goal is to showcase the humanities as a civic and economic asset for the state, and by encouraging cultural heritage experiences, to stimulate the educational potential of travel.
