The Southern New England Folk and Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program is issuing a call for master traditional artists in Connecticut, Rhode Island, or Massachusetts who want to teach their art form to an apprentice from their community or ethnic group, in one of the other states. Now in its eleventh year, this innovative program is designed to foster the sharing of traditional (folk) artistic skills and cultural knowledge through the apprenticeship learning model of regular, intensive, one-on-one teaching by a master artist to a student/apprentice. The Program creates this opportunity specifically for individuals with a common heritage. The deadline for applications is October 13, 2008. For more information please contact Lynne Williamson, Director, Connecticut Cultural Heritage Arts Program at (860) 278-2044 x251 or lynne.Williamson@icrweb.org.
