Maryland Traditions Team: The Full Breadth of Technical Assistance
Monday, September 21, 2-3 PM

At MSAC, the term “technical assistance” refers to a wide array of resources. It includes help with the technological aspects of completing an application, but it also includes strategies for crafting a strong application, providing translation assistance for non-English speakers, accommodating those with limited computer access, or increasing accessibility for people with physical or cognitive disabilities. Join this webinar to learn more about the full breadth of technical assistance offered through the Maryland Traditions program, which serves traditional artists and organizations across the state.
Our collaborators are also offering Professional Development opportunities online!
