Contracts to California mentor artists to train apprentices in traditional arts. Applications must be jointly submitted by a mentor and apprentice artist. Eligible expenses include supplies, artist's fees, and travel. Previously funded art forms include Bulgarian and Romani wedding music, traditional Chinese wushu, leatherworking, and basketweaving.
The Apprenticeship Program encourages the continuity of the state’s thriving traditional arts and cultures by contracting mentor artists to offer intensive, one-on-one training to qualified apprentices. Each contract will support a period of concentrated learning, from 6 mos. to a year, for apprentices who demonstrate a committed engagement with, and a talent for, a specific traditional art form or cultural practice.
If selected for an Apprenticeship, ACTA enters into a contract with the mentor artist and apprentice to implement the work plan proposed in the application. The apprenticeship program period may last between six months to one year, in which ACTA staff will work closely with the apprenticeship pair to gauge and document progress and offer assistance and support.
