FEATURED OPPORTUNITIES
Master-Apprentice Artist Award | Nominations Now Open
Southwest Folklife Alliance
Submit your nomination by May 1, 2020
Master-Apprentice Artist Awards support a master artist or tradition bearer who has identified a qualified apprentice to engage in a teaching-learning relationship that includes one-on-one mentorship and hands-on experience. SFA's highest priority is to support apprentices to learn from master artists within their own cultural traditions. Funds can be used to help cover artist fees, offset costs of raw materials, and support any travel essential to the exchange.

Artists are first nominated by peers within their community, cultural institutions, apprentices, or by self-nomination. Once a nomination has been made, SFA will invite nominees to apply. Only artists who have been nominated AND invited will be eligible.
