Vermont Folklife Center
The realization of the Vermont Folklife Center’s organizational mission begins with fieldwork. Our team of folklorists conduct as many as 100 interviews per year, using ethnographic research methodologies that yield content for Web-based audio, radio broadcast, public presentations, documentary exhibits, and education programs and curricula, as well as building our archival collection with firsthand accounts that capture living memory and document both present and past experience.
These primary research materials and stories, as well as the resulting community partnerships are channeled into our four major areas of programmatic activity: Archive, Discovering Community Education Program, Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program, and the Vision and Voice Gallery and Workspace.
Vermont Folklife Center founder Jane Beck conducted extensive taped interviews with Daisy. Today you can visit the Center and listen to captivating stories told by Turner.
The Vermont Folklife Center continues to research, record and present exhibits about Vermont’s people and communities, including recent immigrants and refugees from eastern Europe, Asia and Africa.
