The Center for Washington Cultural Traditions in Kent This Fall
Interested in traditional cultural practices? A new program is looking to hear from you at meetings across the state this summer and fall- including in Kent on Sept.13th, 2-4pm at the Kent Senior Activity Center!
“The Center for Washington Cultural Traditions will be Washington State’s new folklife and traditional arts program, developed and run in partnership with the Washington State Arts Commission/ArtsWA.
What is folklife, and what are traditional arts? They are activities and objects that are inseparable from a cultural community. They are expressions of people’s heritage, and help tell their story: foods, occupations, crafts, traditional medicine, storytelling, music, and more.
In development now, the Center will serve communities throughout Washington State by surveying, studying, and supporting cultural traditions and tradition bearers through research and a wide range of programming.”
