Houston Arts and Media has merged with The Heritage Society in order to better bring you the stories of Texas and Houston that you've come to expect from HAM. We look forward to your support of our continued efforts.
The Birth of Texas Series continues garnering top awards as San Antonio and the Alamo wins a 2016 REMI Award from WorldFest/Houston International Film Festival. It joins two award-winning 2014 releases: San Felipe and American Settlement and Washington-on-the-Brazos: The Politics of Revolution. Our two previous documentaries from the Series have already aired on Houston's Channel 8 and are being distributed now. Learn more about Houston: A Nation's Capitol and about Spanish Texas .

Our powerful documentary on all aspects of life in Texas during WWII continues to move along as we have topped several interview milestones, but we are still in need of funding. You can be a part of the solution by supporting The Heritage Society through membership donations earmarked for this important project.
HAM is extremely proud to see our body of work recognized as a MasterMind winner for 2015 by the Houston Press. The honor also includes a grant for a HAM project of our choosing. Read the full article about HAM and the other two honorees.
HAM is putting grant money to work on two big documentary projects: The Birth of Texas Series and Home Front: Texas in WWII. Shooting continues in both cases. We are looking for interview subjects and historic photos for Home Front. We will also be scheduling fundraising activities over the next year.
