For more than 20 years, the Alliance for California Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program has bolstered California's cultural traditions through the support of outstanding traditional artists and practitioners.

Each $3,000 contract will support a period of concentrated learning, from six months to a year, for apprentices who demonstrate a committed engagement with, and a talent for, a specific traditional art form or cultural practice. View the program guidelines and apply online here.
