SouthCoastToday: The 2014 Working Waterfront Festival will be supported by a $45,000 National Endowment for the Art, the NEA announced Tuesday [January 7].

“These funds will enable us to continue to provide a forum for the commercial fishing community to tell its own story and a unique and significant opportunity for the public to learn first hand about the lives, skills and traditions of the working waterfront,” said Festival Director Laura Orleans in a press release.
