Grants of up to $4,000 to New Hampshire apprentice and master artists to study and pass on culturally significant arts skills. Funding is intended to help communities share traditions and allow future generations to enjoy their cultural heritage. The goal of the grants is to preserve community cultural heritage through the learning and passing on of traditional arts and folklife – including crafts, music, and dance. Applications in traditions in which there is limited availability of master teachers will be more competitive than those that are widely taught in New Hampshire.
Apprenticeship grants fund a master traditional artist to teach an experienced apprentice in one-to-one sessions for a minimum of 65 hours over a period of six to ten months. Traditional arts are passed down from one generation to the next within communities through observation, conversation, imitation, and practice. They represent a sense of beauty, skills, knowledge, and community values refined over generations and are an important part of the living cultural heritage. Communities can be defined in many ways such as groups that share the same ethnic heritage, language, geographic area, religion, occupation, or way of life.
Grant funds may cover:
To provide for the equitable distribution of funds, when two applications have been determined as having equal merit by the review panel, the State Arts Council will give funding priority to master artists who are applying for the first time.
All projects must be able to be completed while following the New Hampshire health and safety guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
