Deadline Extended, Travel Funding Available for "Native American Artists and the Field of Folklore"

Thursday, April 5, 2012   (0 Comments)

The New England Foundation for the Arts will host Native American Artists and the Field of Folklore: Exploring Commonalities and New Ideas at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center in Mashantucket, CT, on April 20-21, 2012. "This is a rare opportunity for both Native artists and folklorists,” said Dawn Spears (Narragansett), Native Arts program manager at NEFA. "Our goal is to spark dialogue and encourage connection across this group, where diverse perspectives share a deep mutual interest that has often been overlooked.”

The free convening is planned in collaboration with the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center and with Native American and folklorist advisors. For more details on the event and to register, visit NEFA's website at For questions or to inquire about travel support, contact program manager Dawn Spears at or 617.951.0010 x525.
