Program: Community Residencies
Traditions often begin - and continue - in small communities. The Community Residency Program is developed in collaboration with cultural organizations in small and large Texas communities specifically for the purpose of exploring and continuing the tradition in that community.
Community residencies typically last one to two weeks and involve an intense series of public and private programs in schools, public spaces, businesses, and media outlets. With a coalition of local organizations, Texas Folklife helps plan and execute the residency, including conducting research, designing program, promotional, and educational materials, such as curriculum guides.
