This series of five workshops will provide an introduction to documenting your community. Using digital media, this class will change the way you listen and tell stories. We’ll cover audio recording techniques, interviewing skills, photography, and video. This class will both cover the technical, personal, and ethical aspects of community documentation. Go behind the scenes with folk artists and folklorists and learn about their craft in an intimate setting. We’ll talk about how we document traditional practices, what current issues they are thinking about, and see and hear a demonstration of their art.
You may come to the full series or to individual workshops. To sign up or learn more, contact BAC Folk Arts Director Christopher Mulé at firstname.lastname@example.org or 718-625-0080 ext. 229. Equipment will be provided, though if you have your own - even a smartphone - you're encouraged to bring it.
