Welcome NEH, Creating Humanities Communities grant reviewers. Here you will find the supplemental materials being provided by Vermont PBS and Vermont Folklife Center. These materials represent both past and current projects of the partners. The materials are organized by our thematic focus areas: the working lands, traditional craft and music, and civic engagement. We hope you enjoy browsing these materials as they are just a sampling of the rich material at hand that will be used to create our portfolio of media for broadcast, exhibition, podcasts, virtual reality, and “snackable” shorts
