Ethnic and Folk Arts Master Apprentice Program

The Ethnic and Folk Arts Master/Apprentice Program (MAP) recognizes the role of the master artist and apprentice relationship in the preservation of the state’s cultural heritage. The practices, customs, stories, and skills that are passed from one generation to the next influence how we live, what we value, and our personal and collective identities. MAP helps communities preserve their own culture by providing an opportunity for master traditional artists to pass on their skills to a qualified apprentice in a time-honored method.

The FY16 deadline is April 1, 2016.
