Local Learning Workshop

Saturday, October 23, 10:30 am–12:30 pm

This live event will not be recorded.

Sponsored by the Folklore and Education Section, the Local Learning

Chair: Lisa Rathje (Local Learning) and Paddy Bowman (Local Learning)

Educators, folk artists, folklorists, and arts administrators from across Pennsylvania met for a Local Learning summer professional development workshop series. AFS members can meet and learn from the participating artists as we engage learning around “Creative Texts | Creative Traditions,” the 2021 Journal of Folklore and Education theme. The artists will share their art forms—including diverse drum traditions, chainsaw carving, crocheting cos-play costumes, and gospel music—and reflect on the folklore in education experience.
