Philadelphia Folklore Project Seeks Executive Director

Wednesday, April 3, 2019   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Evangeline Mee

After more than three decades of exemplary service to the diverse communities of the Philadelphia region, Philadelphia Folklore Project (PFP) is seeking its third executive director. Applications are due April 15. 

Founded in 1987 by Deborah Kodish, PFP is an independent public folklife agency that documents, supports, and presents Philadelphia-area folk arts and culture–both the arts of people who have been here generations and those who have just arrived. PFP works to strengthen the folk cultural life of area communities because they believe that the quality of urban life is directly related to the persistence, diversity, and vitality of vernacular folk cultures. Select program highlights from the past few years include a feature length, award-winning documentary film, Because of the War focused on Liberian women and their use of traditional music to make peace in their communities; documentation and exhibition focused on Tibetan life in Philadelphia; and cultivation of participatory community klezmer music and dance.
