ABOUT THE NEW YORK FOLKLORE SOCIETY

Greetings!

The New York Folklore Society is planning to serve you— with many new programs and opportunities for folk culture in New York State. However, we can’t do it without your support, and we ask you to consider a year-end donation or membership to the New York Folklore Society.

Planned for 2014 is the following:
  • A regular monthly newsletter apprising you of our latest programs and opportunities

  • A “Newcomer Enterprise Project” to assist newly arrived folk artists with developing micro-enterprise and artists’ markets throughout the Capital District and Mohawk Valley

  • New service offerings and opportunities for folk cultural specialists

  • A repeat of the successful “Folk Art Pop Up and Artists’ Gathering” in New York City

  • A documentation and archival project focused on climate change and severe weather events in this decade

  • The Annual Folk Arts Roundtable

  • And much, much more.

Won’t you please join us in our work without delay? Your donation beyond membership of $45.00 is fully tax-deductible.

Sincerely,
Ellen McHale
Director, New York Folklore Society
