The Community Scholars Program is a free training opportunity for Arkansans interested in finding, documenting and presenting community culture, folklife and traditional arts. Participants will gain skills in documenting and researching culture, archiving and presenting research, and developing projects in collaboration with community stakeholders.
The program aims to prepare participants to feel confident in developing projects such as oral history collections, exhibits large and small, web and digital content, cultural surveys/inventories on community traditions and more.
