Workshop Description

Workshops are designed to help current and prior service members express their stories and folklore (customs and traditions) through audio production training. All participants will gain experience in research and interviewing techniques, audio recording, logging, transcribing, translating, writing composition, story crafting with audio field recordings, and audio editing.

Guest instructors include military folklorists Eric Eliason and Tad Tuleja. Together they edited Warrior Ways: Explorations in Modern Military Folklore (2012), illuminating the ways in which members of the armed services creatively express the complex experience of military life.

Finished stories will be presented at a public listening event in conjunction with VSA Texas at Temple Cultural Activities Center and distributed on the Texas Folklife Podcast, Texas Folklife’s SoundCloud, Public Radio Exchange (PRX), and local radio stations.

An initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts, Creative Forces: NEA Military Healing Arts Network is a partnership with the US Departments of Defense and Veteran Affairs and the state and local arts agencies with administrative support provided by Americans for the Arts.
