Traditional Arts Apprenticeship – advancing cultural skills and knowledge

bobbyrutlandhandscroppedContact deadline: February 15.

The South Carolina Arts Commission’s Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Initiative has two purposes: 1) supporting Master Artists who seek to pass their artistic and cultural knowledge to qualified Apprentices 2) providing Apprentices with an opportunity to advance their artistic and cultural knowledge so they may continue to pursue the art form beyond the life of the apprenticeship.

The Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Initiative assists with the communication and strengthening of cultural skills and knowledge by providing funds for a Master Artist’s time and assisting an Apprentice with the cost of travel and necessary materials.¬†Award funds of $2,500 are available.
