The Folk School is happy to offer its facility, on a case by case basis, as a venue for meetings and events that are within the scope of the mission of The Folk School.

Each level of the house includes at least one bathroom. The Folk School has tables and chairs for up to 50 people, a large deck and pleasant views of our wooded surroundings. We have parking for up to 30 vehicles and plenty of room for outside activities as well.

Testimonial and pictures from the C.G. Jung Society of Northern Alaska, who rented The Folk School in summer 2016:

The C.G. Jung Society of Northern Alaska was founded in 2009 and endeavors to provide events that share and explore the work of psychiatrist Carl G. Jung.  On June 24-25, 2016 the C.G. Jung Society of Northern Alaska held its 1st Jung Midnight Sun Conference at The Folk School. 

The theme of our 1st conference was Nature, Psyche, and Culture, which invited participants to explore and have conversation on how the place we live in and cultural climate surrounding us impacts our psyche on different levels.  The Folk School located in a beautiful spruce and birch forest more than met our needs for the conference.  The facility provided us with a comfortable area indoors for an evening lecture and full day of presentations, as well as indoor/outdoor spaces for socializing and sharing food.

We are grateful for the Folk School staff and volunteers as they readily answered questions and provided assistance.  We appreciate the opportunity to have utilized the space and hope to use the Folk School in the future.

With gratitude,

Nancy E. Winford
