• Overview

    The Down Jersey Folklife Center at WheatonArts has a mission to research, document, and present traditional cultures in New Jersey's southern eight counties. We explore and relate the activities and international perspectives of those people whose creativity has informed the cultural wealth of our region; and of those who inform it now. We support communication through the languages of the traditional arts (narrative, music, dance, craft, and ritual expressions), and invite wide varieties of artists and audiences to participate in an ongoing exploration of the creative process.


    In conjunction with a mayor NJSCA initiative to create a state-wide Folklife Infrastructure, DJFC was initiated in 1995. Public programs include exhibitions, demonstrations by artists/tradition bearers, performances, festivals, classes, training for educators and interns, lectures and seminars. The arts and communities featured at the Folklife Center reflect the cultural diversity of South Jersey.
