New York Folklore

New York Folklore and our US partners (Utica College, the Schoharie River Center, and Duanesburg High School) had our first direct call with Youth of Osh of Kyrgyzstan yesterday. 16 Krygyz and 13 American students (high school and college) are participating in this exchange program that is predicated upon sharing information about folklore and intangible heritage, building technologies, and service learning. It was a great call yesterday, with lots of energy, and back and forth conversation. I look forward to the next 3 months! This photo is of only portion of our group - our Utica College contingent - as we had 3 sites calling in to the video conversation. Asynchronous activities include a shared blog, "Connecting Bridge".
