The Florida Folklife Program and the Public History Center in Seminole County will be hosting a Folk Forum, a day-long cultural event hosted in different communities across Florida. These forums are designed to educate the public about folklore and cultural resources located within their community.
State Folklorist Amanda Hardeman will be presenting informational talks throughout the day explaining how to document and share traditional culture while also highlighting local folk artists, dancers, and musicians. The Seminole County Folk Forum will feature blues music by Maurice Fields Jr. and the King Snake Records’ session players (Sanford), traditional Indian dance by Nina Kumar (Chuluota), a fly-fishing demonstration by Jon Cave (Oviedo), and carving demonstration by Mark Rice (Deltona).
The Forum is FREE and open to the public. Registration is not required. There is limited handicapped accessibility at the Public History Center. Call 850.245.6427 for more information. flheritage.com/preservation/folklife
