American Routes: Routes to a Creative Future-Cultural Sustainability and the Usable Past

Production of six two-hour radio documentaries and four one-hour programs exploring American musical culture to be featured on the "American Routes" radio series.

American Routes public radio program requests that the NEH consider support for the "Routes to a Creative Future: Cultural Sustainability and the Usable Past" series of humanities topical programs, hour-long documentaries and embedded features. Building on prior NEH-supported programming, American Routes will produce six two-hour programs and four one-hour documentary programs each including multiple documentaries on the theme of creatively sustaining the cultures of communities in broader vernacular forms through selective continuity from the past as expressed in words and music with the critical advice, interpretation and/or interviews of humanities specialists and musicians. Out of the dozens of documentary feature and/or interview segments embedded in these programs, several will be offered in edited form by on-going agreement with NPR to "All Things Considered" and to the NPR Music website.
