The International African American Museum’s Faith-based Education
and Outreach Program connects diverse faith communities with the museum,
each other and with innovative resources for worship, education and service.

The International African American Museum seeks African American artisans based in the Lowcountry to submit applications for an opportunity to be placed in the museum’s physical gift shop and rotating online shop. On October 21st 2021, community members will view the top 20 community submissions, which will premiere on WCBD Channel 2. The showcase will feature the submissions, select performances, and brief interviews with the International African American Museum team. Following the showcase, the community will vote on their preferred participant entries, which will be submitted to the museum’s gift shop curator for final selection. This entry process is open to African American artisans in the Lowcountry, although artisans of African descent from across the diaspora may submit application materials for consideration.
