Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program
Application Deadline has passed for 2023.
Missouri’s Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program funds master artist and apprentice teams who are committed to sustaining their artistic traditions and cultural heritage. Priority is given to masters and apprentices who share cultural communities and have an existing relationship. Priority is also given to living art forms with fewer remaining practitioners. Missouri Folk Arts staff seeks new Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program applicants each year to best represent the spectrum of cultural communities across the state.
Missouri Folk Arts intends for the application process to be accessible to all. Please notify staff well before the deadline for assistance per the Americans with Disabilities Act, language translation, or issues organizing nomination materials.
