The 2018 Apprenticeship Program is in full swing! Learn more about this award opportunity through a presentation by Program Coordinator Ian Hallagan. This event is free and open to the public.

The Texas Folklife Apprenticeships in the Folk & Traditional Arts Program provides award opportunities for emerging artists to refine their craft through in-depth, one-on-one training under an experienced artist. Presented by Program Director Ian Hallagan, this event will discuss strategies to apply for this award opportunity, as well as outline the application process. Both experienced and emerging artists from a variety of traditional musics, crafts, and arts are encouraged to apply.  

Texas Folklife’s Apprenticeship in the Folk Arts program encourages the continuation of traditional arts in Texas by providing up to $2,500 awards to master artists to train apprentices. This award will compensate the master artist for his or her time and training; a specified amount may also be used to help offset the costs of travel and supplies.  Successful applicants will participate in one public presentation of their traditional art form in consultation with Texas Folklife.

Application Deadline: Friday, November 10, 2017 at 5:00pm
