Traditional Arts & Folklife Listing

Artist Fees:
The individuals and groups on the Listing set their own fees for presentations. However, the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts recommends an honorarium of at least $150 to $200 per day for an individual and $450 to $600 for a group of three or more. Additionally, presenters are encouraged to pay individuals and groups for mileage traveled based upon the federal rate, which can be found at When asking individuals and groups to travel more than 1½ to 2 hours driving distance from their home, we encourage presenters to provide appropriate lodging and meals.

Inclusion of Community Scholars and Folklorists in Projects:
Presenters and sponsors are encouraged to include community scholars or folklorists in developing and presenting traditional artists. These cultural specialists can be very helpful in developing educational materials, setting a cultural and historical context for presentations, and providing other information that helps educate audiences regarding the importance, beauty, and complexity of traditional arts and culture.

Grant Support:
Traditional Arts Project Grants and Mini Grants can be a source of funds for non-profit organizations that want to include traditional artists, community scholars, and folklorists in programs. Click here for a chart of grant application deadlines.
