Portugal’s utility company EDP has selected nine projects aimed at promoting the country’s popular culture, under the second edition of its programme Tradições (Traditions, in English). Each project will receive financial support up to 250,000 euros.

The nine projects have been selected out of a total of 105 applications from across the nation, according to a press release by EDP Produção, quoted by Portuguese news agency Lusa.

Among the winners are projects such as one aimed at promoting the art of tinplate in Silves or one aimed at taking cultural initiatives to isolated elderly in a number of places in the Alentejo region.

 

This edition of the programme covers a two-year time (2016-2018).
