folk·loreˈfōklôr/
noun

  • the traditional beliefs, customs, and stories of a community, passed through the generations by word of mouth.
  • A body of popular myth and beliefs relating to a particular place, activity, or group of people.

When we hear ‘folklore’ we think about hushed stories told around a fire – legends, tall tales, fables, and other seemingly unbelievable stories. But folklore is also traditional art, literature, knowledge, and practice. Every group with a sense of its own identity shares folk traditions – the things that members of the group traditionally believe (‘how the world began,’ family traditions), do (dance, play music), know (how to cook, how to build homes), make (weave, art, craft), or tell (stories, riddles, and legends).

ARTIST CALL OUT!: DUE MAY 01, 2015
