The Philadelphia Folklore Project (PFP) is well-respected, both locally and nationally, and is viewed as a pioneer and vital part of the region’s heritage. For nearly 40 years, PFP has documented, supported, and promoted Philadelphia-area folk arts and culture, including the arts of people who have been here for generations and those who have just arrived. In collaboration with local artists and community groups, we preserve and strengthen Philadelphia’s folk cultural life because of its power to be transformative in community-level social change.

The Philadelphia Folklore Project has a longstanding tradition of centering the experiences of people who have been historically marginalized, including people of color, immigrants, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ individuals. PFP is committed to continuing that work. We strongly encourage all qualified candidates interested in the opportunity to apply and encourage applications from people with diverse identities.
