About OFN

Mission

The Oregon Folklife Network makes a meaningful difference in Oregon communities and Tribes by documenting, supporting, and celebrating our diverse cultural traditions and by empowering our tradition-bearers.

Vision

OFN conducts folklife fieldwork and engages with communities, organizations, and Tribes to increase public awareness about Oregon’s living cultural heritage.

What We Do

OFN connects all partners, from culture keepers, Tribes, and communities to statewide supporters ~ the University of Oregon, Oregon Arts Commission, Oregon Cultural Trust, Oregon Historical Society, Oregon Heritage Commission, State Library, and Oregon Humanities.

The Oregon Folklife Network serves as a hub for statewide folklife activities in partnership with the Oregon Arts Commission, Oregon Cultural Trust, Oregon Historical Society, Oregon State Library, and Oregon Heritage Commission, along with community partners, including Oregon Tribes, community-based cultural organizations, museums, regional cultural alliances, local arts agencies, K12 schools, universities and colleges, and public libraries.
