Center For Southern Folklore

119 S Main St Memphis, TN
Max Capacity: 300 people
We are extremely pleased to report that The Assisi Foundation of Memphis, The Plough Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts have awarded the Center for Southern Folklore $485,000 in grants to digitize our vast Multimedia Archives, announced John Dudas, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Center for Southern Folklore. This includes a 4-year grant from the Plough Foundation for $375,000 a $100,000 grant from the Assisi Foundation for 2006-2007 and a $10,000 grant from NEA for 2006. We are honored to accept these grants which will allow the Center to develop books, CD’s and exhibits, which will provide the public access to the vast treasures of the archives. These grants provide a solid beginning for the project, which will require four years and $1.4 million to complete. It has been exciting to partner with the Center to develop the Archives. We trust that once digitized, the collection will enrich the understanding of the cultural and social histories, folklife and music of this region as well as ensure its availability for future generations. In making our grant we have challenged the Center to match our contribution by raising $100,000 in new monies by May 31, 2007. By digitizing these valuable archives, educators and the general public will have the tools to make these voices and images available through the products the Center develops, exhibits, and web based technology. The Center's Folklore Hall and Folklore Store are available for parties for your friends, family or business.
