In a partnership with the University of Alberta, Smithsonian Folkways is helping to create a “national centre of musical and cultural excellence,” as a part of the Canadian Centre for Ethnomusicology. The mission is to create a research center for the music of the cultures of Alberta and western Canada, as well as cultures from around the world. The center invites local and visiting musicians and artists to present lectures and workshops. More extensive information can be found at the folkwaysAlive! website.
