Scholorship Program for Residence Artists.

General Operating Expenses in Support of Ongoing Free and For-Free Educational Programming.
Expenses for rent, utilities, and supplies, from paper products to cleaning supplies, add up but are essential to keeping the doors open and lights on, and to maintaining a clean and welcoming facility for the ongoing free writers’ and poets’ groups, book clubs, civic and social community groups, lectures, talks, etc. LHP also offers free-to-the-public “playshops” and workshops to encourage and support the development of creative expression for participants, conducted by local and regional artists who derive financial benefit while sharing their creative skills and talents.
Historic Lowe House Facilities Upkeep and Maintenance.
- In keeping with a fundamental mission of the Lowe House Project – fostering the tradition of Tubac: Where Art and History Meet – which involves encouraging and supporting the village’s cultural and environmental heritage, we help foster the legacy of the family of William Lowe, Jr. and the preservation, maintenance, and upgrades of the the Historic Lowe House, which houses all of our Lowe House Project activities. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, with portions of the building dating to 1767.
