Local Learning: Folk Arts and Education

Local Learning is a loose network of hundreds of people interested in engaging young people with their own traditional culture and with the local culture and folklore of their families, regions, and the larger world. They work in public agencies, nonprofit organizations, schools, universities, museums, community centers, libraries, and out-of-school education settings.

Local Learning publishes quarterly E-Bulletins sharing news of the latest folk arts in education resources, events, and announcements. Sign up to receive Local Learning E-Bulletins here.

News Bulletin from April 2019

As we at Local Learning enjoy the first signs of spring around the nation, we are also finding ourselves confronted in diverse educational spaces with challenges in natural and built environments. What role can folklore and its attention to local arts, knowledge, and people play in these fraught spaces?

News Bulletin from December 2018

Announcing Guest Editor of 2019 Journal of Folklore and Education Special issue “The Art of the Interview.” Also, call for submissions to the Journal, job postings, and a thank you for helping us celebrate 25 years of Local Learning.

This e-bulletin includes information about the 2018 National Heritage Fellows, the Buffalo American Folklore Society meeting, and our 25th anniversary.

News Bulletin from June 2018

Summer can mean many things–gardens root and bloom, classrooms are cleaned up and supplies stored in boxes, and camps for our students and children pop up in the park, library, and community center. Amidst this time of growth and change, we ask ourselves and you: What will learning look like this summer? What will nourish and renew us as we work and play? Also, meet our new intern, read about resources, and learn more about workshops being offered around the nation this.
