To become a member of the Folklorama Board of Directors, a successful nominee must be an individual Member of the Folk Arts Council of Winnipeg Inc. / Folklorama in good standing, or an individual in good standing of a nominating Organizational Member. Current Pavilion Coordinators are ineligible to apply for a position on the Board during the corresponding Board term.

Serving on the Folklorama Board takes time and commitment but the role can be a rewarding experience because the Board provides support and direction to Folklorama’s year-round operations.
