Folklife Apprenticeship Programme Events

APPRENTICESHIPS NOW IN PROGRESS (July 2011 - March 2012)

The Department of Community and Cultural Affairs welcomes applications for our unique Folklife Apprenticeship Programme. The principle objective of the programme is to foster the growth of a younger generation of tradition-bearers in Bermuda. The programme pairs a tradition-bearer with an interested apprentice for an 80-hour apprenticeship beginning July 2011 and concluding no later than March 2012. Deadline for St. David's Cooking and Dinghy Racing extended until July 27. Click here to download flyer.
