Local Learning began as the National Task Force for Folk Arts in Education during a 1993 national roundtable at the National Endowment for the Arts. Today, we connect folklorists, artists, and educators across the nation and advocate for the full inclusion of folklife and folk arts in education to transform learning, build intercultural understanding, and create stronger communities.

William G. Pomeroy Foundation
The William G. Pomeroy Foundation's Legends & Lore Marker Grant Program helps communities commemorate local folklore and legends, and promote cultural tourism with roadside markers. As the program expands nationally, we are seeking folklore organizations, folklore-related academic departments, and state supported councils or agencies to review grant applications and make recommendations.
