Thank you for taking your time to read this note. We are honoured to present you this new edition of IOV Magazine, released during the 2016 IOV World General Assembly in Bergamo, Italy. We have collected a group of diverse and powerful voices here. They speak about their from Indonesia to Brazil, and share what matters to them, from small-in-number peoples’ culture of Extreme-North of Russia to 30th Hungarian Festival of Folk Arts. We are grateful to all of the contributors for their generosity, for making this edition a heritage. All the contributors are members of IOV, and we hope that in the future we would further grow and inspire new young members of IOV to protect and promote folk art and culture. We thrive on the enthusiasm of our members, our network, and culture lovers from all over the world. To stay updated, please follow us on Facebook, or our other social media accounts. We hope to hear more from you in the future.
