Preservation Celebration 2022!
October 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmBy Donation/Free | Register
Join us for our Preservation Celebration 2022 at the newly restored and re-opened Peale Museum! On October 13, we’ll honor our 2022 Preservation Award winners and, with your help, give out four microgrants to people working on the front lines in our historic neighborhoods. We’ll say thank you to our volunteers and honor all of their hard work this year. This gathering also acts as Baltimore Heritage’s annual meeting where the board will elect its new members. With food from Baltimore vendors, wine and beer from Maryland suppliers, and complimentary valet service, we hope you will join us for what promises to be a wonderful evening. And we couldn’t be in a better historic place than the newly renovated Peale Museum. We hope you’ll join us!
About Our 2022 Historic Preservation Awards
At our October 13 celebration, we will honor the people in Baltimore who over the last year have made an impact in helping save our historic places and improve our historic neighborhoods.
Our awards recognize work of all kinds: people who have done an excellent rehab job on their house or building; people who have volunteered at a historic site; people who have stepped up to improve their historic community with a new program or partnership. Individuals are eligible, as are organizations, corporations, and government agencies or programs. Self nominations are encouraged! Please send your ideas for award recipients to us at email@example.com by September 7.
About Our 2022 Microgrants
We’re in our 7th year of giving away microgrants to help fund preservation work in the city. If you have a good idea to help preserve a historic building or place in Baltimore or help revitalize a historic neighborhood, we’d love to hear from you! The process is easy: simply fill out the online application and hit send by September 13.
We’ll pick the most promising ideas and give them a chance for one of two $1000 grants and two $500 grants. The awards will be made on the October 13 celebration at the Peale Museum. Supporters of each idea will get three minutes to pitch them and at the end, all of us present at the Peale will cast ballots to decide which ideas receive the micro grants.
The types of eligible projects are endless, and as long as they relate to Baltimore’s history, heritage, historic buildings or historic neighborhoods we will consider them. Past award winners include: restoring leaking masonry at a historic church, launching an after school arts-based safe space program in a historic neighborhood, supporting archaeological efforts at a historic furnace, and providing supplies for a community trying to provide access to a neighboring park. The sky’s the limit!
The amounts of the award ($500 and 1000) may not be enough to complete an entire project. That’s OK. The goal is to help spark new and support existing neighborhood-level preservation work. You don’t need to be a nonprofit organization or even a formalized group to be eligible. Individuals and small groups are welcome! Complete rules can be found on the application.
