Culture, Heritage, and Place

This report focuses on the work of media organizations dedicated to local and regional cultural expression and connection. These organizations gather and amplify stories, histories, languages, and artmaking practices that foster authentic narratives rooted in place. They help nourish a humane civic sphere, one that honors and celebrates cultural heritage, diversity of voice, and a sense of place.

Building Stronger Communities Through Media

This report offers short profiles of innovative local and regional media projects that are bringing news, insight, stories, and public engagement activities to communities across the United States. We share these examples in order to contribute to the emerging dialogue among place-based foundations about ways local media can help animate and advance our diverse grantmaking missions and program priorities.
