The Kentucky Folklife Program is housed within the Department of Folk Studies and Anthropology at Western Kentucky University and works closely with the department to create opportunities for student to be involved in public folklore work.
The Kentucky Museum is located in the Kentucky Building on the campus of Western Kentucky University. The Museum houses six major permanent exhibits and several changing exhibits. There is a variety of partnerships, services, opportunities, workshops, camps and other outreach provided to the public each year, several of which are produced in partnership with KFP.
Begun as a two-year project with WKU Folk Studies students working to document folklife in Allen County, Kentucky, KFP has continued to build on this work through collaborations with Allen County High School and Community Scholars Training.
