Aroha Philanthropies is delighted to present a creative aging training for Minnesota teaching artists on July 29 and 30, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. This free event, co-sponsored by the Minnesota State Arts Board, will take place in Minneapolis at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Lunch and parking will be provided. 

The training is open to all artistic disciplines and will equip teaching artists to design successful, effective sequential arts education programs for older adults. Organized by a committee of Minnesota teaching artists experienced in the field of creative aging, this training will include an exploration of ageism, a hands-on deconstruction of a quality skill building creative aging workshop, and tangible ideas on how to include social engagement into all artistic mediums in creative aging programs.

Additionally, participants will share resources on creating and identifying job opportunities in the field. The event is open to teaching artists who are new to the field as well as those who are experienced in creative aging, and will provide the opportunity for teaching artists to share knowledge and questions. The training will be led by a diverse selection of Minnesota teaching artists experienced in creative aging and facilitated by Lifetime Arts.

Folk and Traditional Arts Grant Program

Folk and Traditional Arts grant program

GRANT DEADLINE: May 25, 2018 at 4:30PM

The Folk and Traditional Arts grant program is designed to enrich Minnesota communities through folk and traditional art forms being passed on, documented, practiced and shared. This is administered by the Minnesota State Arts Board.

Folk and traditional arts refer to artistic traditions that come from and are rooted in the cultural life of a community. Community members may share a common ethnicity, geographic or regional identity, occupation, language, or tribal affiliation. Folk and traditional arts are learned and passed on through community based systems of training and education where younger generations learn and attain mastery of a form by observation and practice or through apprenticeships with elders and masters.

First time applicants are encouraged to carefully review the Program Overview and Application Instructions and then call the program officer prior to beginning an application.
