Portugal’s utility company EDP has launched the second edition of its programme Tradições (Traditions, in English), aimed at supporting projects that would help preserve and promote the country’s popular culture.

The initiative is “looking for projects related to Portuguese traditions, from handcraft to beliefs, and including folclore, gastronomy, festivals,” among others, EDP says in its website. The goal is to “create new audiences” that could value those old traditions, the company adds.

Selected projects would receive financial support up to 250,000 euros.

This edition of the programme covers a two-year time (2016-2018). Applications are open until July 24.
