Update on Maritime Heritage Initiative

4Culture, the King County arts and heritage agency, has updated its website with news about the Maritime Heritage Initiative. 4Culture says the new Maritime Heritage Alliance, which includes the Center for Wooden Boats, Coastal Heritage Alliance, Historic Seattle, and the Museum of History & Industry, has been meeting regularly to share news, coordinate on major grant-seeking efforts, and find ways to improve the climate for all of maritime heritage in Seattle. Meanwhile, an advisory team of members of the 2005 Maritime Heritage Task Force is moving forward on its objectives: 1) maintaining momentum toward the vision of the Task Force, and 2) securing $600,000 of public seed money over a two-year period to jumpstart next steps.

The MHI update also features some words from myself on the future of Maritime Heritage Network, which is now in its second year. 4Culture is the owner and main sponsor of MHN.
