Folk and traditional performing artists in New England are invited to learn more about NEFA’s grant programs and services. Whether you perform traditional Cambodian music, Sudanese dance, or are a part of a Native American drum group, join NEFA staff and  regional State Arts Agency folk arts staff at this event.

This workshop will focus on:

  • NEFA’s New England States Touring (NEST) grant program, which supports performances and community engagement activities by performing artists touring outside their home state.
  • A demonstration of NEFA’s newest tool, CreativeGround, New England’s regional directory that spotlights artists and creative enterprises. Participants will learn how CreativeGround can help increase visibility and connections with other artists and organizations. One-on-one technical assistance for any participants who want help updating or creating their profile will follow the demo – don’t forget to bring your laptop!

Limited travel support may be available. Contact Summer Confuorto for more information.
