Folk Educators Group

Folk Educators Group

The Folk Educators Group is a national networking group of folk arts educators from across England and beyond, run by the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS). Established in March 2011 the Group has become a rapidly growing network committed to promoting high quality folk arts education and supporting the practitioners who deliver it.

It exists to provide peer information and support, and to encourage dialogue with the wider worlds of culture, learning and participation. The Folk Educators Group also offers other organisations a platform through which to consult, or inform, a committed group of folk arts educators.

When and where does it meet?

The Group meets approximately 3 times a year, for a dedicated full day’s event packed with professional development opportunities, information sharing and networking. These take place at different locations around the country to enable as many different people as possible to attend. One of the meetings every year takes the form of a folk arts education conference.
