Other criteria that will be considered are:

  • Cultural sensitivity to the community’s needs;

  • Projects that lay the groundwork for the potential of continued programming; 

  • Creativity in breadth and depth;

  • Initiatives that incorporate art/craft making into establishing a marketable product for individuals and communities to achieve more sustainability;
