Burning Daylight Visits Smithsonian's Folklife Festival.
Friday, June 29th, 10:45 am meet up at the Smithsonian Castle's Cafe
The Smithsonian's Folklife Festival has three themes this year:
1) Campus & Community--celebrates the 150th anniversary of the founding of land-grant universities and the USDA. The program focuses on agriculture and food, health care, sustainable living, urban and rural revitalization, and education.
2) Citified--celebrates the creativity, art and community of Anacostia with emphasis on the history of the arts as practiced in rural southern agrarian roots transformed by migration to an urban environment.
3) Creativity & Crisis--celebrates the 25th anniversary of The AIDS Memorial Quilt and 30 years of life with AIDS. Through hands-on panel-making activities, individuals and communities come together to remember loved ones and find support and strength in the largest community art project in the world. The program will present more than 100 visual artists, designers, quilters, dancers, musicians, community activists, and others who will share their emotional experience with this project.
