Creative Alliance | Artesanas

We are thrilled to announce that Creative Alliance is the recipient of a grant from The National Endowment for the Arts to fund our Artesanas Apprenticeship program for 2021!

Creative Alliance has been approved for a $30,000 Grants for Arts Projects award to support the Artesanas of Creative Alliance. This project is among 1,073 projects across America totaling nearly $25 million that were selected during this first round of fiscal year 2021 funding in the Grants for Arts Projects funding category. 

“The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support this project from Creative Alliance,” said Arts Endowment Acting Chairman Ann Eilers. “Creative Alliance is among the arts organizations across the country that have demonstrated creativity, excellence, and resilience during this very challenging year.”

The program honors Latin-American traditions by hosting generations of women demonstrating, sharing, and teaching Mexican folkloric arts, crafts, and traditions taking root and thriving in Southeast Baltimore. It includes professional development training in Spanish for immigrant artists, after-school enrichment programs, as well as public community workshops at family festivals and area schools.
