Calling all storytellers

Get funded to tell your stories of Baltimore’s culture and heritage! 

Be Here: Baltimore is a mobile storytelling project about the culture and heritage of Baltimore. A $25,000 fund is being sponsored by izi.TRAVEL to help the MuseWeb Foundation support new and diverse voices in telling the stories of the city through open and location-based platforms. The Call for Proposals for Be Here: Baltimore funding is now open. Submit your proposals no later than July 10, 2016; win $1,000+ and launch your project by August 15!

We are also looking for participants who represent a diverse mix of backgrounds, organizations, and experience with cultural interpretation and mobile storytelling to review applications and help award the Be Here: Baltimore funds. If you want to review proposals or nominate someone else, please email us at
