Exhibition Opening: Celebrating 30 years of the Philadelphia Folklore Project
5:30pm to 7:30pm
Join us to celebrate the opening of Folk Arts for Social Change: Celebrating 30 Years of the Philadelphia Folklore Project at the Philadelphia History Museum, FREE.
Since 1987, the Philadelphia Folklore Project has chronicled and promoted the city’s rich folk life. By examining the customs of people who have been here generations and those who have just arrived, the Project deepens public understandings of local arts and the communities that create them. Over three decades, the Project chronicled and promoted local cultures. Folk Arts for Social Change showcases one of the Folklore Project’s signature community-based initiatives, an exhibition exploring the ways Philadelphia artists honor ancestors of African-rooted dance and drum traditions.
