THE MOUNTAIN TRADITIONS PROJECT

Appalachia, a region often synonymous with tradition and cultural inertia, is changing faster than any time in American history and perhaps faster than anywhere else in America.  The Mountain Traditions Project tells stories of 50 individuals carrying forward Appalachian traditions in our rapidly changing world and explores culture as a dynamic, ever-changing force, challenging long-held notions of cultural rigidity in Appalachia. 

In partnership with:  The Appalachian Independent, Mountain City Traditional Arts, The Community Trust, Allegany Arts Council and the Maryland Humanities Council, Kara Rogers Thomas, Sidney Beeman, Alex Beeman, Leah Scarpelli and Arthur Nazaryan.
