Recording of the Folk Arts Apprenticeship Review Committee of the Florida Folklife Council for 1992-1993

Recording of the Folk Arts Apprenticeship Review Committee of the Florida Folklife Council for 1992-1993

Date
1992-09-26
Description
Five audio cassettes. The meeting was held to decide upon which master-apprentice applicants would receive funding for 1992-1993. Folklorist Stone submitted thirteen applications to the committee, which consisted of Chairetakis, Hansen, Monahan (non-voting member), and Waterman. Bureau chief Loomis also attended. After ranking each application, the committee recommended the following teams: cast net maker Max Dooley & Reginald Reis; leather carver Robert Dellis & Kitt Maynard; Greek bouzouki player Spiridon Skordilis & Antonis Kallis; Andean pan pipe player Aldolpho Rodriguez & Howard Sukay; and Nicaraguan pinata maker Chony Gutierrez & Rosa Marie Fuentes. However, it was decided at the 30 September Florida Folklife Council meeting that only two teams (Dooley/Reis and Dellis/Maynard) receive funding because of financial difficulties. The NEA did not fund the 1992-1993 program because it felt the selection process in previous years did not include enough folklorist input. This year, there was also a professional staff review meeting that was not recorded, held on 22 September 1992. A recording of the 30 September Council meeting can be found in S 1717, box 4; and a copy of the minutes in box 1. For more information on the review meeting, see S 1644, box 11, folder 2. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2004.
