  • Program Curators and their Teams

    This year's Smithsonian Folklife Festival brings over 280 participants and a million visitors to the National Mall. It  features daily and evening programs of music, song, dance, storytelling, crafts and cooking demonstrations, and discussion sessions for three programs: Colombia, Rhythm and Blues, and Peace Corps. Behind the programs' production are talented curators who coordinate teams of dedicated staff, interns, and volunteers. Here is a gallery of the three teams that are the backbone to this year's Festival programs.

    Van Luong is the festival blogger for the 2011 Folklife Festival.
