Workshops & Training

What We Offer

New York Folklore provides topical workshops, convenings, and training opportunities, both in-person and virtually. These include focused gatherings of artists and community representatives and professional development workshops such as Business 101 for Folk and Traditional Artists and Creatives. Training is developed through New York Folklore initiatives but also in response to requests from New York’s cultural communities.

Ongoing training includes the annual New York State Folk Arts Roundtable, developed in partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts; the Critical Folklife Forum, an topical online discussion program; and the New York State Folk Arts Internship program that provides funding support for graduate students and early career professionals in the field of folk and traditional arts and culture.  Other opportunities are developed in response to community requests.  Please contact us for further information.
