IACA Master/Apprentice Deadline This Monday

The Ethnic and Folk Arts Master/Apprentice Program (MAP) acknowledges and supports the mentoring relationship that develops between a master artist and their apprentice over time. MAP helps communities preserve their own culture by providing an opportunity for master traditional artists to pass on their skills to a qualified apprentice in a time-honored method.

The application is open in the Illinois Arts Council’s online Salesforce system and has a deadline of December 5, 2022 at 11:59pm and the awards will be announced in the spring of 2023.

For application assistance, please reach out to our Executive Director, John Gardner. He’s very happy to help: john@companyoffolk.org
