Traditional Arts Indiana (TAI), a partnership of the Department of
Folklore and Ethnomusicology and the Indiana Arts Commission, seeks
to identify, document, and present traditional artists throughout
Indiana. In 2001-02, TAI will focus on creating an apprenticeship
program with Indiana's master traditional artists, designing
programming for the Indiana State Fair, and creating “slide shows”
for the TAI WEB site.
In this class, students have an opportunity to choose hands-on
participation (e.g., fieldwork, planning exhibits and programs, media
applications, publications) as well as reflecting on their work
through assigned readings and journal writing.
