Folk Camp

guiding principles


  • Folk culture is organic and non-authoritative. 

  • There is tradition and there is the ever-present reality of change. We embrace both. 

  • We honour tradition and the wisdom passed on to us through the generations that preceded us, and we honour the creative divine spirit that lives in each and every one of us, here and now.

  • We celebrate diversity.

  • We strive to leave Earth a better place for having us. 

  • We embrace that which is beautiful and lasting, and has been made with care and devotion.

  • We share. Songs, stories, food, hopes and dreams, concerns... 

  • We listen to learn & understand.

  • We participate in making each space safe: free of discrimination, judgment, negativity, full of understanding, acceptance, empathy & support.

  • We welcome people of all identities & backgrounds.

  •  We do not tolerate harassment of any kind.
