Mid Atlantic Arts announced a new grant opportunity for folk and traditional arts projects in the mid-Atlantic region. Applications open April 15, 2022 and are due June 15, 2022.
Mid Atlantic Arts’ Folk and Traditional Arts Community Projects grants fund projects designed to support the vitality of traditional arts and cultural communities in the mid-Atlantic region. Non-profit organizations in several states that seek to engage folk and traditional artists, practitioners, or culture bearers in community-based projects are eligible for funding in amounts from $1,000 to $7,000.
The majority of project activities must take place within the mid-Atlantic region. Eligible project activities include but are not limited to performances, public art collaborations, workshops, trainings, exhibitions, fieldwork, and artistic collaborations. Projects must include some publicly-accessible component, including but not limited to a performance, event, exhibit, video, podcast, Q&A session, public interest meeting, archival collection, website, or report. Mid Atlantic encourages projects that cross sectors, state or territory borders, or connect organizations, artists, or practitioners within one state or territory.
In alignment with Mid Atlantic Arts’ strategic vision to promote equity, diversity, inclusion, and access, applications for projects that support or engage underserved or underrepresented artists, practitioners, traditions, or constituents are strongly encouraged.
