Left Bank Humanities Foundation (LBHF) Projects
Left Bank Humanities Foundation (LBHF) is currently applying for nonprofit status, a recognition that will enable us to better serve our virtual community. We look forward to supporting various projects such as teaming with National Public Radio (NPR) for community discussions on literature, art, and history, especially in rural areas where access to such forums is limited. We also plan to spotlight writers, artists, musicians, designers and others that we feel deserve special recognition in the arts and humanities community. Please tour the list of our current projects.
