As we move forward with our work we are finding many opportunities for creative partnerships with community members near and far. This includes long-term internships or short-term conversations or events.
As part of our ongoing community-based work, we work with community members (both young and old) on various research and community-based projects, including our ongoing Garden Book. We also partner with students near and far on various projects engaging folklife, oral history, and community action and can often work out internships for class credit. For example, check out this partnership with Kelsey Trotter in Searcy County.
If you live in Arkansas, you can also take our Folklife and Oral History class at ATU. For more information on that go here.
We place a great deal of emphasis on learning as multi-directional, and we’d love to work with, and learn from, you. Got an idea for a partnership? Click here to contact us.
