Folklife & Traditional Arts

Connecting South Carolina citizens and visitors to the state’s dynamic artistic and cultural traditions

The SCAC’s folklife and traditional arts program helps keep alive traditions that have become our shared inheritance as they are passed down from generation to generation. We accomplish that goal in a variety of ways:

  • Provide grant portfolio for traditional artists and organizations hosting folklife activities
  • Support collaborations between arts providers and local, statewide, and national funders to maximize impact of public funds
  • Celebrate and support the many ways South Carolinians engage in artistic expression and creativity
  • Develop opportunities for individuals and organizations to communicate the role that traditional arts and folklife play in our quality of life, including education, health and wellbeing, and economic vitality
