FROM HOME TO HOME: Northwest Folklife Virtual Programming

In response to the ongoing pandemic, Northwest Folklife pivoted in the Spring of 2020 and introduced a new digital platform, From Home to Home, serving as a virtual platform to continue showcasing local artists and culture bearers, creating a space for cultural exchange and community connection. From Home to Home hosts all of Northwest Folklife’s programs, providing a space for our collective voice, arts, and traditions to be shared and celebrated.

Launched in May 2020 with Northwest Folklife Festival, From Home to Home amplified the Festival to a global audience, reaching 86 countries for an estimated 40k viewers. This past October From Home to Home featured Northwest Folklife’s first virtual Seattle Children’s Festival, offering family friendly performances, hands on activities, a virtual event passport and more. As we look ahead to 2021 From Home to Home will expand to not only host events but become a greater resource and platform for a collection of ongoing content that encourages participation of audiences of all ages to discover, learn, connect, and create.

Sponsors of From Home to Home are able to connect with Northwest Folklife supporters and attendees and are featured during live broadcasts in a variety of ways. Sponsor benefits can include program segments, commercials between performances, shoutouts and messaging from live emcees, social media campaigns, digital ads, e-blast messaging and much more! We are happy to provide customized sponsorship packages that meet your marketing needs and goals and get your brand in front of our viewers.
