The Individual Artist Grant Folk Arts Fellowship (IAGFAF) supports master artists in their efforts to preserve an artistic tradition—as a living legacy for their community—by helping them to pass their knowledge and skills on to a qualified and competent apprentice(s). This grant category enables master artists and (where appropriate) apprentices to 1) set aside time for intensive teaching and learning of the tradition and/or 2) purchase materials for the work at hand. Applications for these grants are reviewed by an external, impartial peer review panel and in recognition of exemplary artistic merit within a traditional art form.
