Funding Opportunity: Native Arts and Cultures Foundation – Call for Mentor Fellows
New funding opportunity for traditional or visual artists of American Indian or Alaska Native descent, via the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation. I am attaching a color flyer that can also help spread the word about this wonderful, $30,000 award for Native master and emerging artists:
NACF’s new Mentor Fellowship program will award accomplished American Indian and Alaska Native artists to mentor emerging artists in the Traditional Arts or Contemporary Visual Arts categories. The program’s goal is to improve creative development, artistic rigor, and intergenerational cultural and traditional knowledge perpetuation by fostering the growth of Native artist mentors and apprentices, and empowering them to play an integral role in their communities.
Eligibility: Must be a 5-year resident, and enrolled Native citizen of a tribe, located in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Southern California (San Luis Obispo, Kern, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego and Imperial Counties), Arizona, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North or South Dakota.
