MFAP’s Community Scholars

Topics: Missouri folk arts

The Community Scholars project taps into local knowledge of the folk and traditional arts by building relationships between MFAP and local experts and scholars. These individuals help keep the Missouri Folk Arts Program updated on developments in the traditional arts around the state, and in return MFAP offers training in digital recording, archiving, editing, project development and public presentation.
