Schedule for the 2012 NCFS Annual Meeting (96kb PDF)
Since 1913 the NCFS Annual Meeting has been a place for enthusiasts, students, and people working in the field to meet and gather, and present their work. The theme for 2012 is "Resilience." We will explore the ways communities in eastern North Carolina creatively address changes in the environment and the economy, and the way cultural practices adapt and flex to maintain their meaning and relevance in a changing landscape.
Panel and presentation topics include resilience and identity, community responses to environmental and social change, and the role of folklife in community-based economic development. In the afternoon there will be a ceremony to honor the winners of the 2012 Brown-Hudson and Community Traditions Awards, with presentations and performances by the recipients and nominators.
