In a recent message on their website, The Folklore Village Board of Directors said they are “thrilled to announce that Terri Van Orman will be our new Executive Director. Terri is a folk artist, folklorist and non-profit administrator who most recently was the Executive Director of the Arkansas Craft School. She has a deep understanding of Folklife, in America and internationally, and she brings long-standing experience with a passion for community building and cultural ecology. She and her husband John have strong connections to the upper Midwest and are very excited to move to Iowa County, Wisconsin.”
Terri began her new job on May 21st and successfully defended her Capstone in the MACS program a week later! She graduated this Spring. She is the organization’s first full-time director in over two years and says, “The position certainly has its challenges….but, the programming here is absolutely wonderful, and there is a long and devoted base of supporters. Funding and infrastructure will be my first tasks, so I’ll be putting my Goucher management classes to test here!
