High school students and middle school or high school teachers and administrators are invited to participate in Texas Folklife's 2014 summer institute “Stories from Deep in the Heart,” a 5-day intensive fellowship in audio documentary production with professional producers, journalists and cultural workers. Participants will be guided through production of short audio documentaries on themes related to folklife----family and community traditions. Participants must attend all sessions. Fellows will complete one audio story in groups during the program. The “Stories from Deep in the Heart” summer institute is part of an on-going series of workshops for teachers and students in the Austin area and Central Texas schools.
