Grants ranging from $4,000 to $6,500 to Hawaii individual folk and traditional arts and culture teachers for apprentice mentoring and training. Funding is intended for ongoing training of future cultural practitioners and teachers in order to promote and build the capacity of living cultures. Projects must be implemented entirely in the State of Hawaii. Teachers and apprentices must apply as a project team.
Projects must be for folk and traditional cultural arts and practices of living traditions that are relevant to cultural communities in the State of Hawaii. Relevant means that they are practiced, taught, learned and/or shared within the cultural community to which the folk or traditional art or practice belongs.
Priority grant projects include traditional arts/cultural practices that are underserved or are not roust due to:
- Few active masterful or skilled cultural practitioner teachers.
- Few active practitioners.
- Limited access to train or learn (geographic or economic barriers)
Apprentice Mentoring Grants meet the HSFCA Strategic Priorities for 2019-2023:
- Culture: Support, foster, and celebrate the artistic expressions of Hawaii’s diverse cultures and communities. Honor and support Native Hawaiian culture, arts, artists, and cultural practitioners; and advance cultural arts education and creation
- Engagement: Enhance public engagement in culture and the arts; and increase access to diverse arts and cultural programs
- Education: Strengthen arts education for all learners; and expand community-based education programs and opportunities.
Teacher and Apprentice applicants should be deeply rooted in their cultural heritage with a high level of skill and experience. The most successful teams are those with enduring relationships that are respectful and caring. The Teacher should be recognized as an established and mature tradition bearer and an active practitioner of his/her folk or traditional art form/cultural practice, with demonstrated mastery and artistic excellence.
The Apprentice must have proven experience in the folk or traditional art for further training, and be able to demonstrate commitment to the practice and the culture. Teacher and Apprentice applicant team may be family members. The intent is to embed the cultural knowledge of family legacies within nuclear or extended families, or to lessen the risk of declining family skill and knowledge.
