Folk University

Local affordable education & learning organization.

Education for and by the curious folks of Cortes. Folk U is dedicated to bringing Cortes Islanders together to share what they know (and have fun doing it).

Folk University is a project of Cortes Literacy in partnership with Cortes Islanders. At a time when our ideas and differences are being used to bring us further apart, can we as an island of people use these same tools to build us each up? We are an island blessed with riches of resources, learning, arts, writing, music, wood work, hand work, gardens, scientists, multiple generations, and beauty.

Living on Cortes still provides an opportunity to appreciate that slower kind of learning… the kind for which we have had to work. Folk U is an opportunity to delight in curiosity and grow in community.

Mission Statement
Folk University is an experiment, a question, a verb. At its heart is the hope that at a time when our ideas and differences are being used to divide us from each other, that perhaps we can engage in the act of learning, inspiring, and sharing in a way that brings us closer together.
