We believe compelling culture instills a sense of belonging in a community.
That's why Folkways supports culture creators.
By joining together in conversation about the possibilities instead of the problems, we are creating a future that is distinct from the past.
By demonstrating what’s possible – through public exhibits, community engagement projects, and service – we uncover spaces that the community can hold together.
By championing policies that lower the barrier of entry for culture creators we set the stage for culture to thrive.
Folkways programming is funded through donations and sponsorships. Please consider donating to keep our events going.
