The Folklorist Next-door: A Community Folklife Series

New Podcast Series Coming December 2nd!


 A cohort of community folklife fellows explore traditional arts, community practices, values, and ritual celebrations in their communities. Fellows participated in a six-month program where they received mentorship, training workshops, and project support from cultural arts non-profit, Texas Folklife. Topics include foodways, labor, music, and celebrations. This project is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
