LEH Supports Four Festivals with Strategic Partnership Grants

With support from the State of Louisiana, the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities has awarded four Strategic Partnership grants, in the amount of $8,000 each, to organizations producing high-impact humanities programming. These organizations represent long-time, trusted partners in geographically diverse areas of the state.

“The 2023 Strategic Partnership Grants are yet another way that the LEH continues to support the efforts of long-standing partners with a proven track record of success,” said Miranda Restovic, LEH executive director/president. “These large scale, impactful festivals and cultural series bring humanities programming of the highest quality to Louisiana residents.”

The 2023 Strategic Partnership Awardees are Banners at McNeese State University in Calcasieu Parish, the Louisiana Book Festival in East Baton Rouge Parish (above), the Northwestern State University Folk Festival in Natchitoches Parish and the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival in Orleans Parish.
