Northwest Folklife Festival 2017

Northwest Folklife is an independent arts organization that celebrates the multigenerational arts, cultures, and traditions of a global Pacific Northwest, 365 days of the year. For 45 years, Northwest Folklife has been deeply committed celebrating the diversity of our Northwest communities and de-mystifying

our differences together, under one roof. We believe that arts and cultures build stronger communities.

Each year, Northwest Folklife presents the ‘Cultural Focus’, a year-round exploration of a Pacific Northwest community through special performances, panels, workshops, exhibitions, demonstrations, activities and educational materials. This program allows Folklife to connect more in depth with the people that we serve and empower their artistic expressions and cultural traditions.

Northwest Folklife’s 2017 Cultural Focus: Festál Turns 20 will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Seattle Center’s Festál Cultural Festivals. Composed of 23 regional community organizations, including the Northwest Folklife Festival, Festál presents world festivals highlighting the distinct arts, cultures and common threads of ethnic communities. As the longest running Festál organization, Northwest Folklife will engage with Festál communities to curate and plan year-round arts, culture and ‘folklife’ programming, such as performances, panels and workshops with Festál community colleagues. Northwest Folklife will also serve as a resource and support to each Festál community by conducting one-on-one meetings, group trainings, and promotion throughout the year. These promotions will highlight key community leaders and volunteers from each festival as identified by festival organizers.
