2022 North Texas Engagement Series
Texas Folklife is looking to reconnect with the North Texas creative community and its supporters and learn how we can help to foster, support, and sustain the diverse cultural expressions of the North Texas Region.
The first stage of our outreach efforts in North Texas will be our “Talk-O Tuesday” North Texas Community Event Series. We invite artists, musicians, community members, businesses, educators, frontline workers, and other supporters interested in getting involved with our work to meet our team, learn more about our mission, and talk about what support the folk & traditional arts communities of North Texas are in need of, and where Texas Folklife can fit in!
North Texas Engagement Event Series Schedule
Session 1: Talk-o Tuesdays - Music & Cultural Heritage - October 25th from 5-7 PM (Deep Ellum Brewery)
Session 2: Talk-o Tuesdays - Education & Exploration - Date and Location TBA
Session 3: Talk-o Tuesdays - Health & Folk Arts - Date and Location TBA
North Texas Giving Day
NTX Giving Day is the Annual Campaign in North Texas to inspire generosity and support non-profit organizations' efforts across the region! This NTX Giving Day we invite our backers in North Texas and beyond to help us fundraise to produce our outreach and expansion efforts in the North Texas Region. This Fall, Texas Folklife plans to hold a series of events to re-engage supporters and artists in the North Texas Region we have had the opportunity to work with over the past 30+ years and connect with new folk & traditional arts community members. We expect each event to cost approximately $3,000 to produce (including venue rental, a paid artist/presenter, supplies, food and drink costs, team travel costs, etc.), and we are asking for the help of the community to support some of these expenses.
