Part of the mission of the Longhouse Education and Cultural Center is to promote economic development for Native artists. We have put together this page of opportunities, guides and other resources for Native artists.

Resources from the New York Foundation for the Arts

Recently, the Longhouse partnered with the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience to bring Maria Villafranca, senior Program Officer at the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), to deliver a resources and services workshop to our area.

Maria assembled a presentation filled with helpful information about NYFA, along with many tips and opportunities for artists. She also provided two "Arts Opportunities & Resources" guidesone with general information, and another with information specifically tailored to Native American artists in our region—you can access these guided by clicking on the following links:
