Working to increase the public awareness, understanding and appreciation of the traditional arts in the South, South Arts' Traditional Arts Grant Program provides funding to projects that bring a traditional artist/ensemble and a scholar/folklorist for multi-day residencies in Southern communities.

This funding program is open to a wide variety of organizations, including community cultural organizations, schools/colleges/universities, libraries, museums, presenters, etc. Unincorporated organizations may apply through a fiscal agent. The program is designed to serve both communities and traditional artists.

There are two deadlines—August 15, 2017 and December 4, 2017—for projects taking place between September 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.

Applicants are encouraged to contact Teresa Hollingsworth, Senior Director, Film and Traditional Arts prior to submitting their application to discuss their project.
