PFP Seeks Folk Art and Social Change Fellow

Friday, August 14, 2020   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Rosalind V. Rini Larson

The Philadelphia Folklore Project (PFP) is seeking a qualified individual to fill the position of Folk Arts and Social Change Fellow. The Fellow is a professional folklorist and cultural worker who reports to the Executive Director and works collaboratively with staff, artists, and community members on project and program design, development, and implementation. The Fellow oversees PFP’s Folk Arts and Social Change Residency program and participates in the organization's educational partnerships. Programming operates with the premise that folk cultural knowledge has the power to be transformative in community-led social change. The position requires a cooperative approach, and diverse perspectives are valued as central to the core mission. As such, the Folk Art and Social Change Fellowship is not only about amplifying the organization’s public work and reach but also about addressing underserved and underrepresented identities and perspectives in the field of folklore today. While the position will require substantial flexibility due to the unpredictable nature of the COVID19 pandemic, in FY21, the position will be largely focused on diverse place-based work, healing traditions and public health, and our Gita Santi: Indonesian Community Initiative.
