Preservation, paychecks "If we catalog those who are do- ing these arts and crafts, then we can investigate how they can be marketed by other than non-profit organizations," he said. "Of course, in marketing traditional works, people like to see how it's done. Are these artists willing, do they have the time, to come and demonstrate?" He said that one way communi- ties might take advantage of the work of the folklife project would be to pull more of the identified traditional artists and performers into local fairs and festivals. Marco Hernandez is associated with the Made By Hand Interna- tional Cooperative shop in South Bethany. A native of Mexico and a sup- porter of the preservation of arts, crafts and other forms of cultural heritage, Hernandez thinks that the folklife project can play a vital role in Delmarva. He works full time with the co- operative and has his own musical group, so his personal involve- ment with the project will be lim- ited. However, he thinks that finding and cataloging performers and crafts people is very important. He has already referred several Hernandez was instrumental in organizing the first Christmas posadas that were held in several southern Delaware communities. He said that they were very well attended by people of all cultures. "At first, some said that we would have to have Santa Claus so people would come, but I told them that it would not be appro- priate or authentic," he said. "We had a traditional posada and the Americans liked it. "Now, I am working with those in different cultures, such as Guatemalans, getting them to par- ticipate in festivals. Some are sur- prised at our relationships with those who are from countries very close together, but we do not nec- essarily have relationships with each other." Dr. Kimberly Grimes, an an- thropologist and the director of Made By Hand, shares some atti- tudes with Boyd-Heron. She said preserving the crafts tradition, whether it is in Roxanna or in Mexico, needs to be done so that the arts and crafts provide in- come. "In the case of the Fair Trade Federation and the cooperative, we want to see the traditions pre- served without people having to move," she said. "It requires a market balance, and it is a hard balance to strike. "Most of those from other coun- tries and cultures who come here, Become involved In his opinion, the lasting ef- fects of the folklife project will depend greatly on the number of people who become involved. He said he feels that one of the main purposes of the introductory ses- sion was for the leaders to listen and get ideas on how best to carry out the project. The Delmarva Folklife Project began late in 1997; it is planned as a three-year project. As it progresses, and after its completion, the information gath- ered is intended to be used as a re- source to develop public events and to provide technical assis- tance programs for artists and practitioners of folk tradition as well as cultural organizations, tourism agencies and local busi- nesses. The project is sponsored by a National Leadership Initiative grant from the National Endow- ment for the Arts. Additional funding comes from a variety of sources, including the Delaware Division of the Arts, the Delaware Humanities Forum and humanities councils in Maryland, Virginia and New Jersey as well as the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Rural Development Center.
