Kentucky Folklife Program

For over 20 years the Kentucky Folklife Program has been dedicated to the mission of documenting, presenting and conserving the diverse traditional cultural and heritage of the Commonwealth.

While settling in to our new home at Western Kentucky University, Kentucky Folklife Program will stay focused on practical folklife and traditional arts projects currently in production at the same time that we continue to understand the evolving needs of local constituents throughout Kentucky who have a crucial stake in documenting the intimate folk traditions of their regions. With this new vantage point at WKU the KFP will also begin exploring exciting and innovative partnership opportunities with other universities across the nation involved in hosting folklife programs.
