We are incredibly excited (and humbled) to announce that This Anthro Life is partnering with the American Anthropological Association and the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage to head to DC for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival this year! We’ll be there June 27-July1 and July 4-8 on the National Mall.
As part of AAA’s awesome World on the Move: 100,000 Years of Human Migration initiative, TAL’s Adam Gamwell will be heading to Washington DC for the Folklife Festival to record and create new content for future podcasts!
Adam will be working on site with the AAA’s Leslie Walker throughout the festival to conduct interviews with festival presenters, local experts, museum curators and guests. We will be bringing you a new short run series that details the diverse cultural experiences and worlds of humans on the move. The festival focuses on Armenia, Catalonia, and African Fashion, so there will be a huge diversity to the stories we collect and share.
If you’ll be in DC, hit us up, it’s always great to say hi :).
