Attention southern Vermont friends! This fall and winter the Vermont Folklife Center is bringing events and workshops to ‘the one-and-only’ Brattleboro.

Upcoming VFC events in Brattleboro:
Coming to 118 Elliot in Brattleboro beginning November 1, 2019.
Richard Brown’s recently published retrospective—The Last of the Hill Farms: Echoes of Vermont’s Past—showcases the photographer’s most cherished subject: Vermont’s hill farmers. This exhibition, which bears the same name, offers the chance to experience the Vermont that Richard entered and began to photograph in the 1970s.
Do you have an audio storytelling project in mind but don’t quite know where to begin or how to proceed? The Vermont Folklife Center is offering a 3-part workshop series in Brattleboro, which will present an Introduction to Audio Storytelling. Take all three or just the one that you need the most. Offered in partnership with The Brattleboro Words Project through the generous support of The Friends of Brooks Memorial Library.
