Program Solicitation: National Folklife Network
Application Deadline: December 17, 2020
In Fall 2019, the Arts Endowment released Living Traditions, a portfolio analysis of the agency’s folk & traditional arts program. The report identified significant gaps in the map of national arts funding for the folk & traditional arts, centered primarily in seven regions within the United States (four rural and three urban). The report also articulated a need to identify and connect related organizations and individuals within each region to promote and strengthen the folk & traditional arts.
In response, the Arts Endowment is making a significant investment to establish the National Folklife Network (NFN). The purpose of this Program Solicitation is to select an organization (the “Cooperator”) to establish and administer the National Folklife Network.
