Stories Summer Institute 2014

High school and middle school teachers, students and administrators participated in Texas Folklife's 2014 summer institute “Stories from Deep in the Heart,” a 5-day intensive fellowship in audio documentary production with professional producers, journalists and cultural workers. Participants were guided through production of short audio documentaries on themes related to folklife----family and community traditions. This year Texas Folklife partnered with the City of Austin's Asian American Resource Center to document the stories of this diverse community.

Fellows completed one audio story in groups during the program. The “Stories from Deep in the Heart” summer institute is part of an on-going series of workshops for teachers and students in the Austin area and Central Texas schools.
