|Agency History||ECAP was created in 1981 by the BGSU Department of Ethnic Studies and held its first programming in May 1982. Its mission at the time was to generate student interest in the arts and to inspire, perform, support, document, preserve and disseminate ethnic art at BGSU and around the world. Its focus was also to "train and provide an opportunity to BGSU ethnic students to participate in this important multi-cultural mission and responsibility of the Ethnic Studies Department and the University.” |
A current description of ECAP's goals and mission can be found on the ECAP website.
ECAP achieves its goal through "grants funding through a competitive grant request procedure to support multi-ethnic and multicultural arts events that feature professional artists/performers. Endeavors that involve audiences across disciplines, age, class, and include a range of race and ethnic orientations are preferred."
|Scope and Content||The collection does not provide information regarding ECAP's first decade (the 1980s), rather the documentation that is available begins in the 1990s. Such documentation includes meeting minutes, annual reports, and copies of the ECAP newsletter. Later records include final reports for funded projects. |
A listing of funded projects from 2000 to the present is available on the ECAP website.
Collection size: 3 letter sized manuscript boxes (1 cubic foot).
|Series Description||The collection is roughly organized into three series - general organizational information (minutes, budgets, newsletters, annual reports, etc.); final reports for funded activities organized by year; and documentation of specific recurring events sponsored by ECAP, organized alphabetically.|
