Folkalizer Nominations:

do you know, or are you that someone, who is constantly in the know of the neighborhood? Someone, or a group of people, that always throws great events or introduces you to people you genuinely connect with? Who's the person that you see at every event, chatting casually and comfortably with everyone? It may even be the person behind the scenes, quietly connecting all the dots for their community... 

we want to highlight those people and the communities that nourish them. Remember that people connect in many different forms, including through music, art, food, exercise, dance, open conversation... its endless! A Folkalizer can be anyone from your neighborhood librarian to the owner of the 50 year old taco restaurant at the end of your block. We're looking for those creating communities with and around you. send us an email (with "folkalizer nominee" in the subject) telling us a bit about your nominee in the body. include links where possible, and make sure to include your own name and location. We cant wait to meet you all!
