The Folklore Society of Greater Washington is concerned about the health and safety of our members, event attendees, performers and staff. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the FSGW board has adopted the policy of canceling or postponing in-person events until some time after the local emergency orders restricting large gatherings have been rescinded.
Not all of our events are canceled, some are changing to an online format using conferencing and live streaming tools. Look for details in the calendar and in the FSGW E-blast.
To support the performers for FSGW events that have been canceled or postponed, the FSGW Board has agreed to offer payment of contracted amounts to the performers.
We encourage our members to follow the orders and guidelines of government officials regarding social distancing and stay at home and avoid all non-essential trips. We will resume our in-person events when informed that it is safe to do so.
Meanwhile stay safe, we wish you good health, and check out storytelling, singing, and concerts on-line!
