Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation sponsors a biennial retreat for folklorists based in the mid-Atlantic region. This gathering gives academic, public sector and independent folklorists the opportunity to meet in an informal setting to exchange information and explore potential collaborations and partnerships. It is also an opportunity to share best practices, learn new skills, and gain exposure to new ideas and approaches. The location varies from year to year.
The 2014 retreat will be held April 5-7 in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. The theme for this retreat will be "Folklore Infiltration: Folklore at Work Beyond the Field." There will be a panel discussion on the retreat theme; a pie-making workshop with Emily Hilliard (http://www.nothinginthehouse.com/) with a focus on connecting to online communities; a workshop on digital media file organization; a concert with Linda Lay and Springfield Exit; among other activities. For a full schedule (subject to change) please download here.
