Maryland Traditions


The New Media Studio and Maryland Traditions, the folklife program of the Maryland State Arts Council have a long-standing collaboration,  producing video projects highlighting living traditions throughout the state, including recipients of  Maryland Traditions Heritage Awards.

In addition, NMS has worked with Maryland Traditions on community-based projects involving UMBC students in documentary and oral history work.   Ongoing documentary projects have grown out of this collaboration, including Baltimore Traces and Mill Stories.
