Event Details

What would it do for your arts programming, economic development, and community building initiatives to know:

  • Who is in your community/audience today and what they care most about?
  • How to build coalitions that work and how to make local government/community partnerships successful?
  • How valuing your local expressions of culture fosters healthy communities?


This summit is FREE, but you should register now to hold your place!
More Info: www.ncfolk.org     Email: ncfolklife@gmail.com             Phone: (919) 383-6040

Who Should Attend
: Traditional artists, local arts council staff and arts programmers, executive directors, professionals in travel and tourism, chambers of commerce, and public policy, all folklorists (working in or out of the field, or independently), educators from folk schools and academic programs, and anyone whose livelihood or community’s well-being relies upon local culture and traditional arts.

Why You Should Attend: We know you don’t need pep talks, or examples that don’t work at home. We know you’re too busy to come, and too understaffed to leave the office. Here’s why you should come anyway!

  • Have 1 ½ days of real conversations with wise veterans and emerging leaders; learning from each other and strengthening our statewide network.
  • Learn how to root community-based initiatives in traditional arts and local stories for sustained success.
  • Hear success stories and get hands-on practice applying them to your own organizations and communities.
  • Help select the programming that will help you best after you've registered!
  • Stay for the FREE Statewide Folklife Festival the following day, September 28!


When: September 26-27, 2013

Where: Extraordinary Ventures
200 South Elliott Road
, Chapel Hill, NC 27514 http://www.extraordinaryventures.org/

How: Register now to reserve your spot.  While registering, apply for a travel stipend or home stay space, if needed. Check out local hotel options (book now as it will be Parent Weekend at UNC-Chapel Hill and hotel rooms are likely to sell out fast). Make sure you provide a valid email that you check, as we will send you up-to-date information and a survey about your program preferences.

 The time has come to re-imagine folklife in North Carolina.

This program is made possible in part by funding from:


The National Endowment for the Arts; the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities; the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources; and the Fox Family Foundation.
