Folkfest is actively planning for our 2021 virtual festival – Culture Connect. We are excited to include some new activities to create engagement opportunities that will connect our patrons digitally with our member cultural communities – Folkfest pavilions.
For one of these activities, we would love to hear from you – our loyal Folkfesters: Is there a cultural topic or element that you've been curious about? Here is your chance to ask! Become a part of Folkfest 2021 by submitting a question that you may have for one of our participating pavilions.
For example: "Hi! My name is Jane, and I have always really enjoyed the festivities at the Greek pavilion. Could you tell me what is the meaning of the exclamation, 'Opa!', and what is the history behind the smashing of plates?"
We'll select a handful of questions that will be featured in the 2021 virtual festival - Culture Connect, or used as online content leading up to and after the event.
If your question is selected, you will be contacted to virtually record the question at a convenient time. We would then assign one of our Youth Ambassadors to research and provide an answer. Your question video would be added to the recording of the Youth Ambassador's answer and featured this summer.
This year we have Youth Ambassadors participating from the following pavilions: South Sudan, Hungarian, India, Philippines, Nepal, Scottish, Chinese, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Greek, Irish and Ukrainian Karpaty. They are eagerly awaiting your questions!
To submit your question/s, follow the link below. We'll be accepting questions until July 29th, 2021
All questions submitted through our online form will be entered to win a prize.
Full contest details coming soon!
**Staff or Directors and their immediate family shall not participate in Folkfest scholarships or Honorary Ambassador selection, awards, competitions, or contests requiring a submission of names.**
