About Texas Folklife

Mission Statement

Texas Folklife is a private, non-profit cultural organization dedicated to celebrating and preserving the traditional arts and culture of the Lone Star State. We work directly with folk artists and communities to document living traditions and present them to the public through exhibitions, concerts, media projects and education programs.


Texas Folklife (TxF) is dedicated to documenting, preserving and presenting the folk arts and diverse cultural expressions found in the Lone Star State. For the past 27 years, TxF has steadily grown, continuing to foster, perpetuate, and communicate folkways through exhibitions, concerts, performances, documentary audio and video archives, lectures, demonstrations, symposia, community residencies, and apprenticeships. Education is integral to all TxF programs, whether they are presented in schools, nursing homes, museums, theaters, or in factories and cafes. It is our objective to engage the public, and in particular young people, directly with artists, craftsmen, storytellers and musicians to ensure that integral cultural and artistic traditions are celebrated, passed along, and made alive for a new generation.
