About Media Folk
We promote cultural literacy. In a climate of search-driven knowledge, people tend to listen to what they know and be influenced primarily by personal connections. We seek to diversify this knowledge landscape, so that diverse groups learn about each other. We do this by making cultural expressions visible in the digital landscape. Media Folk is dedicated to supporting arts and culture practitioners with digital media, training, and capacity building.We help community leaders and organizations get the next generation excited about their heritage, and help equalize access to technological resources and funding streams.
