Abstract: The role of folklorists who work in the public sector often involves far more administrative duties than fieldwork opportunities—more working with paper than working with people. Recently, the dedication and patience of the Folk Arts staff has been rewarded through a new opportunity from the Fund for Folk Culture (FFC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the dynamic practice and conservation of folk and traditional arts and culture throughout the United States. The Folk Arts staff nominated three Missouri artists each for the 2007 and 2008 Artists Support Program grants. Their work is discussed.
