dc.description Conference en
dc.description.abstract On June 19 - 21, 2014, forty local culture educators from around the state convened at Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin to identify the commonalities of their work, to develop a list of assets and obstacles pertinent to implementation of local culture pedagogy, and generate strategies for sustaining their future local culture projects and programming. Acting as the principal facilitator for the three-day program, folklorist Lisa Rathje guided the group through an interactive series of small group discussions and activities into a statement of goals for future work. Folklorist Selina Morales provided the keynote presentation, introducing her agency, the Philadelphia Folklore Project, and its role in the founding and operation of the Folk Arts-Cultural Treasures Charter School (FACTS) based in Philadelphia’s Chinatown. Ebony Flowers from UWMadison’s Image Lab directed participants through drawing exercises, introducing them to new ways of thinking and problem solving. Arts at Large provided artwork and displays to enliven the meeting room, and lastly, participants made site visits to three locally-focused organizations: the Madison Children’s Museum, the American Family Insurance Dream Bank, and Badger Rock Middle School, a charter public school in Madison that emphasizes neighborhood involvement, energy independence and gardening as means of increasing student resilience. en
