cerf+ New Emergency Relief Guidelines for Folk + Traditional Artists
Posted on: July 12, 2017
Deadline: December 31, 2017
In an effort to assist more artists working in craft disciplines whose work is rooted in and reflective of the cultural life of their community, CERF+ has developed guidelines that specifically address the needs of folk and traditional artists.
Folk and Traditional artists applying for CERF+ Emergency Relief under these alternate guidelines must have had a recent, serious emergency, but the eligibility guidelines don’t focus on a “career” or a “business.”
Applicants must document an ongoing history of handmade objects that embody the National Endowment for the Arts’(NEA) definition of folk and traditional arts.
