About the Talk: At the Philadelphia Folklore Project (PFP) we believe that thriving folk and traditional culture is directly linked to community vitality. Attention to traditional arts and culture within one's own community helps to build a strong base, identify action and nurture partnerships for tending community needs and advancing social change. Some of our work focuses on supporting communities and artists in interpreting their traditional arts and presenting their own work back to themselves. In my presentation I will use examples of PFP's long-term collaborative partnerships with Philadelphia's refugee and immigrant communities to highlight the how and the why of public interest folklore work.
