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 2000-01,
TAI will focus on creating an apprenticeship program with Indiana's master
traditional artists, designing programming for the Indiana State Fair, and
collaborating on plans to launch a statewide crafts market.

In this class, students have an opportunity to choose hands-on participation
in aspects of these initiatives (e.g., fieldwork, planning exhibits and
programs, media applications, publications) as well as reflecting on their
work through assigned readings and journal writing.
