Wisconsin's quality of life is intimately linked with its rich resources in the arts and humanities. Wisconsin's cultural opportunities build pride and give expression to our communities.
In a time of sales pitches and information overload, PortalWisconsin.org offers a trusted service, with no agenda but to help visitors find cultural information easily.
PortalWisconsin.org launched Jan. 12, 2002. Major funding was provided by the Future Fund of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Seed money was provided by the University of Wisconsin Extension Cross Divisional Program Innovation Fund. Additional funding was provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
PortalWisconsin.org offers a model that can be replicated by other public broadcasting stations interested in creating cultural portal sites. Contact staff listed below for information about database architecture, graphics and other assistance available to PBS and NPR stations.For more information
