The National Museum of the American Indian has put a call out for their Artist Leadership Program, which is due on Monday, May 5, 2014.  This outreach program of the NMAI Museum Programs Department targets individual Indigenous artists as well as Native museums and cultural centers.  This is a great opportunity for Indigenous artists of the Americas and Hawaii to interact with museum’s collections and share their newly gained artistic inspiration with their community through public art projects by collaborating with community youth and local community artists. This program aims to affirm that indigenous arts do hold value and knowledge, rebuild cultural self-confidence, challenge personal boundaries, and foster continuity while reflecting artistic diversity.  For more information, click on the links below:
