The Center for Washington Cultural Traditions is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 Washington State Heritage Arts Apprenticeship Program.

Program participants may teach or study occupational arts, traditional language practices, storytelling and other verbal arts, dance, culinary traditions, music, and much more.
For participating in the program, master artists will receive $4,000 and apprentices receive $1000. Additional funds may be added to the honorarium for materials, travel costs and more.
