Texas Folklife’s programs help folk art practitioners across Texas continue their craft and carry traditions forward, give a voice to marginalized communities and individuals statewide, and provide a platform for community-based cultural expressions to thrive.  

But we can’t do this work without you.

Please support Texas Folklife by donating for Amplify Austin 2017!  This 24-hour annual community-wide day of giving helps pull the community together towards a common cause and also helps many local Austin nonprofits.  Your support for Texas Folklife during Amplify Austin helps us produce our flagship programs Big Squeeze, House Concert Series, Gallery Exhibits, Accordion Kings and Queens, Apprenticeships in the Folk & Traditional Arts, Stories from Deep in the Heart, and more!
