Grants of $4,000 to New Jersey individuals for arts and crafts mentorship activities and projects. Funding is intended to support the efforts of local master artists and craftspersons as they mentor apprentices in folk and traditional arts. Priority will be given to proposals that support art forms that are in danger of being lost or that help to preserve an endangered language.
A master folk artist is someone who has learned a traditional art as part of community life and has attained a high level of excellence in the eyes of other community members. An apprentice is someone from the same cultural group who has demonstrated ability and commitment to learning and practicing the traditional art of the master.
A master artist may be proposed by no more than two apprentice applicants in a single grant cycle. It is the responsibility of the applying apprentice and the master to comply with this requirement. If two apprenticeships that include the same master are funded, the training must still be conducted one-on-one, either virtual or in-person, and not in a group or class setting.
The Council will place a higher priority for support for applications that represent:
