The Since 1999, the Alliance for California Traditional Arts’ (ACTA’s) Apprenticeship Program has supported California’s cultural traditions with 331 contracts to outstanding folk and traditional artists and practitioners. Now entering its 18th cycle, ACTA’s Apprenticeship Program encourages the continuity of the state’s living cultural heritage by contracting exemplary master artists to offer intensive training and mentorship to qualified apprentices.

The Apprenticeship Program is supported with generous funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Walter & Elise Haas Fund, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, with additional support from the California Arts Council, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and individual contributors supporting one or more apprenticeships.
