Appalachian Folklife Week 2016 / Augusta Heritage Center Andrew Carroll June 14, 2016 When Augusta began in 1973, a time when people were coming to rural West Virginia to live closer to the land, the summer program focused on Appalachian crafts, music and folklore. Although Augusta’s programming has evolved to include many other cultural traditions, promoting our regional heritage is still at the heart of our mission. This new week will give you a taste of “old Augusta.” Learn traditional crafts, foodways, storytelling and music the old-fashioned way with the guidance of master artists. Augusta provides a supportive environment to hone your hands-on skills, stretch your understanding of cultural contexts and interact with a community of traditional artists. Tuition paid BEFORE June 1: $450. Tuition paid AFTER June 1: $490.
