Alliance For California Traditional Arts
The Alliance’s Living Cultures Grants Program is a partnership with the Walter and Elise Haas Fund, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the James Irvine Foundation. It funds organizations conducting exemplary projects in the traditional arts in California. Folk and traditional arts are defined as art forms that are learned as a part of the cultural life of a group of people whose members share a common heritage, language, religion, occupation, or region. Eligible projects include public presentations; workshops and gatherings; equipment and materials purchases; conservation, creating, or acquisition of important traditional arts items; and intergenerational classes or other educational programs within a community. Also of interest are documentation of traditional arts, skills, ceremonies, beliefs or performances; media, Web, and print publications; professional and leadership development; and other activities. Preference will be given to nonprofits with budgets under $1 million. Grants are generally limited to $5,000 although a small number of up to $7,500 each will be awarded to projects that demonstrate significant impact on a particular cultural tradition. Additional information including guidelines and proposal forms is available on the Web site.
