Jambo Arts Programs

Jambo Arts is excited to offer a grant program for established and emerging artists. The Fellowship has been named for one of Jambo’s founders, Daryle Newman, whose commitment to cultivating artistic talents in the Marshall Islands has become an inspiration to all of us. Two awards in the amount of $200 will be given to support the creation of artwork and artistic talent including supply purchases, training, and/or other activities.  

Each award comes with a paid one year membership to Jambo Arts. These awards are open to all artists and art lovers residing in the Marshall Islands who are currently a member or wish to become a member of Jambo Arts.
