Folk Alliance is the service association for the field, and works on behalf of the folk music and dance industry year round. Our advocacy efforts tackle issues important to the folk arts community. We offer a business directory of contacts for members, and a non-profit group exemption program for US-based organizations.
We are forming strategic partnerships with allied organizations to increase our voice in support of the arts on a grassroots and international level. Our goals are to increase access to needed resources for our members, and to expand to the breadth of the folk music and dance experience for the general public. We do the work we do on the international level so that our members in the field can do their work in their local areas more efficiently, with wider impact, and more profitably.
