Houston Institute for Culture

We are improving the resource directory, which includes listings of Houston cultural and community organizations. Please complete the information described at www.houstonculture.org/listings and return it to listings@houstonculture.org. Forward this web address to any artists and organizations you are aware of. In the information you return to us, which will be posted on line for potential volunteers, event organizers, etc., try to include general information which will not become outdated quickly.

Visit http://www.houstonculture.org/listings/sample.html to see an example of our own organization listed in this format. As listings are submitted, they will be indexed on this page: www.houstonculture.org/listings
