Maryland Traditions Project Grant

Maryland Traditions Project Grants support research and programming that adds significance to Maryland communities by encouraging and funding professionals as well as community scholars, organizations, and artists to document, preserve, sustain, and present Maryland’s traditional arts and culture.

Program staff and partners will work with Maryland Traditions Project Grant recipients to provide technical assistance and identify networks to connect the project to other activities and resources. Past project grants have included the production of a public old-time fiddle competition, a row house arts festival hosted by a major museum, an oral history of oyster workers, a documentary film of traditional river baptisms on the Eastern Shore, an Arabber wagon restoration project, and a CD of a master traditional Irish button accordion player from Baltimore.
