Florida Folklife Program

Folklife Education

The Folklife Program is able to provide numerous resources for educators and students. Workshops provide educators in schools, museums, historical societies, and other organizations with opportunities for integrating folklife into their curricula and educational programs.

The Florida Music Train, an award-winning resource, provides educators with an entertaining and engaging program that brings Florida's musical heritage and traditions alive in the classroom.

The Florida Folklife Program and Samuel Proctor Oral History Program Internship is a joint internship opportunity for University of Florida graduate students interested in documenting intangible cultural heritage to do independent research, conduct ethnographic fieldwork, and implement interpretive presentations based on this fieldwork for a public-sector folklife program and historic preservation agency.
