Projects funded in this round of awards include a play reading and related programming inspired by public conversation about the removal of monuments in Baltimore; sign language interpretation for the literature portion of Baltimore Book Festival/Light City; and a panel discussion asking “What Is the Black Aesthetic?”

For the Annapolis Maritime Museum, the funds will go to gathering interviews from Eastport and Annapolis locals, focusing on the maritime heritage of Annapolis and the ecology of the Chesapeake Bay. The funding will allow the museum to add to their oral history collection.

Maryland Humanities provides mini grants (up to $1,200) and major grants (up to $10,000). Funding goes to nonprofit organizations that use the humanities (literature, philosophy, history, etc.) to inspire Marylanders to embrace lifelong learning, exchange ideas openly, and enrich their communities. Grant criteria encourage free public programming in many forms.

Maryland Humanities’ Grants Program is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Maryland Historical Trust in the Maryland Department of Planning, and the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation.
