South Baltimore Arts Collective

In South Baltimore, there are some things we just can’t take for granted: like the rhythm of the campana, beat of the nyabinghi drum or chords from the accordion. No matter where we come from, the essence of South Baltimore that breathes cultural knowledge and tradition needs all of us to survive.

Through educational trips and workshops, the South Baltimore Arts Collective fosters equitable access to creative arts-based experiences that connect South Baltimore residents with each other so that they can advocate for diverse programs and activities that are relevant to their communities.

Cherry Hill Arts & Music Festival Academy

South Baltimore’s historic Cherry Hill community is home to countless art visionaries. Their work invigorates and inspires. The Cherry Hill Arts & Music Festival Academy routinely provides educational opportunities for artists in Cherry Hill so that they can become better at their own creative practice and experience a greater level of visibility and sustainability.

Cherry Hill Heritage Project

The Cherry Hill Heritage Project celebrates the idea that no one is better qualified to chronicle the history of a community than the people who live there.

According to Barbara Samuels, managing attorney for the ACLU of Maryland’s Fair Housing Project, the history of the development of South Baltimore’s Cherry Hill community is one of the most striking examples of deliberate residential racial segregation in any city.

The Cherry Hill Heritage Project uses a variety of media including film, art, oral history, photography, historical documents and more to document the personal histories of Cherry Hill residents through interviews conducted by youth residing in the Cherry Hill community between the ages of 13 and 18.
