The Center for Washington Cultural Traditions is a new arts and heritage program set up to survey, study, and support cultural traditions, tradition bearers, and traditional communities throughout Washington State. Though not a physical center, this innovative program will be a statewide, go-to source for learning about Washington’s rich, diverse cultural heritage. The Center is housed at the state’s nonprofit humanities council, Humanities Washington, and presented in partnership with the ArtsWA/the Washington State Arts Commission.
