Patton Arts Day 2020 Poster

Texas Folklife participated in the annual Patton Arts Day on March 13, 2020. We worked with schools to distribute cultural survey to the students, and choose six students' stories to record. The six "Patton Stories" cover the students and their families traditions and customs. The finished audio stories are based on interviews with the students and their parents, and feature customs based in India, Ireland, Mexico, El Salvador, and more.
