Juan Gutierrez leading a professional development workshop.

New York State is home to countless traditions thriving in its ethnic, regional, occupational and religious communities.  Living Traditions is an online portal to video and photographic documentation of folklife practiced throughout the state.  Through this portal, community members and folklorists  documenting these traditions are invited to share their work and introduce their organizations. The site was created in collaboration with the Folk Arts Program of the New York State Council on the Arts in partnership with City Lore.
