Video Title:
Making Life Richer: The Importance of Sharing Culture at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival
Description:
“I think that now, more than ever, the sharing of culture is important. The way we do it at the Festival is pretty special. It’s chaotic, and sometimes schizophrenic and hard, but every day when I leave here, I think about what we did together, and how it’s just one gesture that I hope will open a window to a world for a child, or enable someone who’s an older adult to think about their life in a different way and the community that she or he came from as having a different kind of meaning and impact.” —Sabrina Lynn Motley, Director, Smithsonian Folklife Festival Production and editing: Alexis Ligon Videography: Albert Tong, W.N. McNair, Andrea Curran, Ann Saul, Helen Lehrer, Claudia Romano, Ryan Shank, David Barnes, Alexis Ligon, Michelle Mehrtens, Lillie Schneyer, Kamilla Young, Pruitt Allen [Catalog No. CFV10857; © Smithsonian Institution, 2016]
