Center for Belonging Folk School
FUND A NEED IN 2024: SINGING IN COMMUNITY AND NURTURING LOCAL SONG LEADERS
A participatory action research study with emerging community song
leaders in the folk school movement
Singing together brings communities together!
Throughout 2024, the Center for Belonging Folk School will host and facilitate a series of community singing leadership and listening experiences! These experiences will provide valuable insights, resources, and practical techniques to integrate the power of song into folk schools.
We hope that this project seeds an expansion of community singing through folk schools
- Interweaving song into the daily rhythms of folk schools;
- Creating belonging and well being through song;
- Supporting communities to better cooperate across differences; and
- Ensuring a means for growing new song leaders and continuing the tradition of singing in folk schools.
Help get folk schools to and from these trainings. The research grant pays for the training, but we are hearing that folk schools need financial support for transportation costs.
Support this effort with a contribution!
