As an expansion of NMWA’s Women, Arts, and Social Change programming, the project will consist of talks, workshops and a participatory exhibition exploring how traditionally feminine roles in the family, home and community powerfully intersect with ethnic and ancestral identities. Overall, the National Endowment for the Arts has approved 1,187 grants totaling $27.3 million in the first round of fiscal year 2020 funding to support arts projects in every state in the nation, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
