June 17 is the first in a four-part online series, Negotiating Cultural Appropriation: Lineage, Teaching & Relationships, where teaching artists in dance and music from across the country deliberate on salient issues regarding the politics of teaching, learning, sharing, and performing culture as insiders, outsiders, and diasporic cultural members. There will be panel discussions followed by small group workshops.

The series is part of Philadelphia Folklore Project’s Technical Assistance Workshops, and is offered in partnership with the American Folklore Society, Urban Artistry, and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
