Brooklyn Arts Council, in partnership with The Cultural Strategies Institute invites your participation in a town hall meeting celebrating and strengthening folk and traditional arts in Brooklyn to inaugurate Brooklyn Folk Arts Day!

This first of a kind meeting will inaugurate Brooklyn Folk Arts Day, an annual gathering of Brooklyn?s traditional artists, traditional arts organizations and communities they serve, teaching artists and educators, funders, elected officials, and other friends of folk and traditional arts. Moderated by BAC Folk Arts Director Kay Turner, this gathering will address ways to preserve, sustain, encourage, and expand traditional arts practices in Brooklyn. In town hall fashion, we hope to hear ideas and concerns from a wide range of people attending. The reception provides further opportunity to meet and greet across Brooklyn folk arts communities and genres of practice.

Monday, October 24, 5:30-8:30pm Doors open 5:30pm for sign-in (drinks and snacks available). Meeting begins promptly at 6pm and ends promptly at 7:45pm. Reception begins at 7:45pm and goes to 8:30pm.
