The American Folklore Society has been awarded a grant from the Folk and Traditional Arts Program of the National Endowment for the Arts to continue our Consultancy and Professional Development Program from June 2017 through May 2018.

This program provides contracts for consultancies and professional development opportunities that--in addition to any other outcomes--will create case studies of issues, challenges, organizations, or events in the folk and traditional arts field, or descriptions of best practices in some area of folk and traditional arts work, that AFS will share on its web site.

We are now accepting applications for support of June 2017-May 2018 consultancies and professional development activities. For program guidelines and links to reports from previously funded activities, please visit www.afsnet.org/?page=ConsProfDev.

We deeply appreciate NEA's belief in our mission and support of our work. As the federal government’s FY 2018 budget review proceeds in the coming weeks, remember to inform your US Senators and Representative of your support for all of the creativity, ingenuity, and economic development that NEA, with its extremely modest budget, leverages nationwide. For more information about this budget process and about how you can indicate your support for the NEA, NEH, and other federal cultural agencies, visit https://afsnet.site-ym.com/news/347330/Act-NOW-In-Support-Of-the-NEA-NEH-and-Other-Federal-Cultural-Agencies.htm.
