2017 Folklorists in the South Retreat

Our theme this year 'The Power of Our Stories' will feature an incredible line-up of presenters including Kiran Singh Sirah (President of the International Storytelling Center), Jorge Mateus (Executive Director of the Association for Cultural Equity), Sue Eleuterio (Independent/'The Folklore Advocacy Toolkit') and a screening of Joe York & Scott Baretta's new film,  'Shake 'Em On Down: The Blues According to Fred McDowell' with the filmmakers


We are gathering in Canton, Mississippi (outside of Jackson) the weekend of April 7-9, 2017. Mark your calendars, make your travel plans, join us!!

Registration and agenda information is on the South Arts website at: http://www.southarts.org/convenings-and-conferences/folklorists-in-the-south/

As always, we promise a relaxed atmosphere, good food, great conversations, new ideas and the opportunity to 'recharge' personally and professionally.

Special thanks to Jennifer Jameson (we miss you already!) and the Mississippi Arts Commission for their support and planning.

The deadline for registration is Tuesday, March 28.
