The Folklorama Festival and Canadian Multiculturalism

Folklorama Folklorama
Folkloric dance and music festivals draw in diverse audiences, entertaining participants and instilling a sense of pride in Canadian multiculturalism as a national trait. Folklorama lays claim to being the longest running and largest multicultural festival of its kind in the world, and it is one that relies heavily on community groups more than well known performers. What can an examination of the festival tell us about Canadian national self-narratives? And is it possible to negotiate the complexities of difference and identity politics by engaging in music and dance?

The Center for World Performance Studies Faculty Lecture Series features our Faculty Fellows and visiting scholars and practitioners in the fields of ethnography and performance. Designed to create an informal and intimate setting for intellectual exchange among students, scholars, and the community, faculty are invited to present their work in an interactive and performative fashion.
