Education and Programs
Alaska Native Heritage Center has been selected by ArtPlace as a 2012 grant recipient in the amount of $295,000. ArtPlace is a multi-agency organization supported by public and private funders to foster community development and growth through the arts.
The Heritage Center will implement the“ImagiNative Experience Alaska” initiative which will build community through Native arts, both by creating an important resource for members of all Alaska Native cultures to develop artistic practices and by establishing a city-wide embracing of Native arts and culture.
By dispersing Native art, resources and cultural material throughout the city, a single vibrant hub is created that will serve artists and residents, attract visitors and help us achieve our mission of sharing, perpetuating and preserving the unique Alaska Native cultures, languages, traditions and values through celebration and education.
First Peoples Fund will conduct Business training.
Purpose: The Business Training provides Native artists the tools and support they need to manage entrepreneurial businesses in order to achieve economic success and grow as leaders in their tribal communities.
Workshop dates: October 16 & 17, 2012
Location: Alaska Native Heritage Center (Anchorage, AK)
