We believe compelling culture instills a sense of belonging in a community.

That's why Folkways supports culture creators.

Connection

By joining together in conversation about the possibilities instead of the problems, we are creating a future that is distinct from the past.

Demonstration

By demonstrating what’s possible – through public exhibits, community engagement projects, and service – we uncover spaces that the community can hold together.

Folkways Infrastructure

Infrastructure

By championing policies that lower the barrier of entry for culture creators we set the stage for culture to thrive.
