48th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival Survey
We want to know about our community! Creating a community that reflects the diversity of Seattle is a priority for Northwest Folklife. In addition, we are occasionally required to report on the demographics of participants in our programs, in aggregate, anonymously. Providing the following information and feedback supports our appeals to funders and sponsors so that we can continue to provide excellent, accessible and inclusive programming.
